    99An internship is a paid post, for three months (occasionally up to 6), at Microsoft Research in Cambridge (MSRC).  You get to work on a project agreed, usually in advance, with your MSRC sponsor.  Both parties benefit.  You get to work in a leading-edge research lab, with fantastic people floating around all the time.  We get the benefit of your hard work, and perhaps the start of a collaborative relationship.

    1313In principle, Microsoft owns any intellectual property you generate, but this isn't relevant for an open-source project like GHC.  You're also strongly encouraged to publish your work as a paper, often written jointly with your sponsor.
