Google AI Residency Program for Young Graduates in STEM

Google AI Residency Program for Young Graduates in Stem

The Google AI Residency Program was created in 2015 with the goal of training and supporting the next generation of deep learning researchers.

With machine learning fast becoming a critical area for a broad range of applications, we recognized the need to evolve our research goals and expand beyond deep learning to include a breadth of machine learning subfields.

People from a wide range of disciplines are beginning to realize the importance and impact of this area of research. With growing interest in the field, there is a corresponding need for researchers with hands-on experience in machine learning techniques and methodologies.

Residents will have the opportunity to be mentored by distinguished scientists and engineers from various teams within Google AI, and work on real-world machine learning problems and applications.

In addition, they will also have the opportunity to collaborate and partner closely with various research groups across Google and Alphabet.

The Google AI Residency Program is primarily based in Mountain View, California. Residents will also have the opportunity to be based in New York, Cambridge (Massachusetts), Seattle (Washington), Montreal, Toronto, Zurich (Switzerland), Accra (Ghana) and Tel Aviv (Israel) depending on project fit and availability.

Your recruiter will work with you to determine the best location for your work, though please also let them know if you have a location preference.
