Google is Recruiting Student Researchers. Here is How to Apply!

The Student Researcher Program's primary objective is to foster academic collaborations with students through research at Google. This is a paid internship position that offers the opportunity to work directly with Google research scientists and engineers on cutting-edge research projects.

About the Internship

The Student Researcher Program offers more opportunities for research students to work on critical research projects at Google in a less structured way. The program allows for flexibility beyond the limitations of our traditional internship program on aspects such as duration, time commitment, and working location (with options for on-site or remote). The topics student researchers work on tend to be open-ended and exploratory and don't always have a clear deliverable as a traditional internship would.
