MSRC has lots of other interesting work on programming languages too: F#, security, etc. Check it out [http://research.microsoft.com/aboutmsr/labs/cambridge/ here].
When can I apply?
How to apply
You can apply ANY TIME. Internships are not just the summer months. Contact one of us (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) in the first instance (or another sponsor if they are more suitable).
To apply, follow the instructions at [http://research.microsoft.com/aboutmsr/jobs/internships/], '''and''' email one of us to say that you have done so.
A CV is typically a boring, dry kind of thing, consisting entirely of data (education, employment, publications, talks etc etc). Yes, we need that, but '''please also include a final section entitled "Personal research statement"'''. This should address the following questions:
* What really excites you and fills you with wild enthusiasm?
* What you are proud of in your existing track record?
* What you are working on now?
* What sort of thing you would like to do if you came here?
* (Brutal, but frank.) Why should we pick you?
Typically your personal research statement will be a couple of pages long, but it's really up to you. You don't need to address the above questions in the order given, and you can range more widely if you want. (You should find the same writeup useful for other purposes.) Write in the first person, and try to convey something of yourself rather than just data.
