Google – Student Researcher, BS/MS, Winter/Summer 2024

🔹 Paid Internship Opportunity🔹

The Student Researcher Program’s primary objective is to foster academic collaborations with students through research at Google. Join Google for a paid Student Researcher position that offers the opportunity to work directly with Google research scientists and engineers on research projects.

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 opportunities 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 like a traditional internship would. The US base salary range for this full-time position is $90,000-$116,000.
