Eligibility Criteria

We usually consider only one application per university department or per laboratory of a national research institution.

Only applications from countries in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East will be considered. Some additional criteria apply in some of these countries (see Country-Specific Application Guidelines below).

Only applications in research areas relatively close to the ones researchers at Microsoft Research in Cambridge focus on will be considered. These areas are:
Computational Science
Computer-Mediated Living
Constraint Reasoning
Machine Learning and Perception
Online Services and Advertising
Programming, Principles, and Tools
Systems and Networking

Unless otherwise specified, applications may only be submitted through the online application tool.
Please leave a comment IF you like the entry.

It's like visiting a place where there is a guest book by the front door. Before you exit, you sign it to leave a note about your experience of the place.

I know that people are visiting by virtue of site
meter, but almost no one leaves a comment.

If you are in a hurry (and who isn't these days?), just leave a "thanks".
