Through our partners, our designs power everything from coffee machines to the fastest supercomputer in the world. Do you want to work on technology that enriches the lives of over 70% of the world’s population? Our internship programme is now open for applications! We want to hear from curious and enthusiastic candidates interested in working with us on the future generations of compute.
About Arm and Arm Research
Arm plays a key role in our increasingly connected world. Every year, more than 20 billion products featuring Arm technology are shipped. Our engineers design and develop CPUs, graphics processors, complex system technologies, supporting software development tools, and physical libraries.
At Arm Research, we develop new technology that can grow into new business opportunities. We keep Arm up to speed with recent technological developments by pursuing blue-sky research programmes, collaborating with academia, and integrating emerging technologies into the wider Arm ecosystem. Our research activities cover a wide range of fields from mobile and personal computing to server, cloud, and HPC computing. Our work and our researchers span a diverse range from circuits to theoretical computer science. We all share a passion for learning and creating.
About the devices, circuits and systems group and our work
We are looking for interns to join our Devices, Circuits and Systems Research team; we want to hear from candidates interested in delivering post-Moore scaling and pushing compute past the limits of power, cost, and performance. Our research activities cover a wide range of chip design challenges such as, but not limited to:
- Delivering power to multi-GHz processors
- Crafting performant and energy-efficient systems with emerging post-Moore memory and switching devices(e.g., 2D devices, emerging NVMs, in-memory and near-memory computing, photonics/plasmonics)
- Design-Technology Co-optimization to enable computing at extremes (high-performance, ultra-low temperature, near threshold, etc.)
- Design, architecture and EDA methodology for 2.5D and 3D ICs
- Designing microwatt sub-threshold microcontrollers
- Realising 1 cent disposable printed/flexible electronics
- Prototyping battery-less sensor nodes
- Circuits and algorithms that enable new computing, e.g., hyper-dimensional (HD) compute and probabilistic compute
Our interns typically pursue Masters or PhD degrees in engineering and science, most commonly Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, or Physics, but we encourage applications from any field of study if you are motivated and feel your unique skills are relevant to what we do.
We will also consider your application if you are pursuing an undergraduate or bachelor's degree and have relevant project or work experience.
Skills and Experience:
- You have strong problem-solving abilities
- You have a keen research interest in VLSI and chip design
- You are keen to learn new EDA tools and techniques
- You think about your research "across the stack" from devices to systems
- You want to collaborate inclusively and participate in the research community in line with Diversity-Equity-Inclusivity (DEI) beliefs
Our internships and how to apply
We invite you to apply for an internship if your research interests align with ours and are enthusiastic about the type of work we do. As an Arm Research intern, you will get a first-hand view of how Arm crafts its technology and maintains an ecosystem of more than one thousand partners that have shipped over 170 billion leading-edge Arm-powered processors. We will work closely with you to develop an internship project that is tailored to your interests. Our internships are three months long with flexible start dates. We offer continuous support, feedback, and development opportunities as well as flexibility to decide how to complete project tasks.
You will work alongside experienced researchers within a specific team and also the wider research group doing real project tasks. We believe in developing talent for the future, so we seek to offer many of our interns a graduate position once they have finished their studies.
Please provide a cover note with your application; include some information about what you are interested in and the kind of projects you would like to work on. If you have a clear idea about the work you want to do, include it in your letter. It is okay not to be 100% sure! Tell us about your studies and what you enjoy, and we will try to find the right fit for you.
Arm is an equal opportunity employer, committed to providing an environment of mutual respect where equal opportunities are available to all applicants and colleagues. We are a diverse organization of dedicated and innovative individuals, and don’t discriminate on the basis of any characteristic.
