Summer 2015 Internships
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, US

Scholarship / Financial aid: summer salary and the cost of travel expenses

Date: 12 weeks

Deadline: February 1st, 2015

Open to: students who are interested in pursuing PhD-level database research

Announcement follows

The Carnegie Mellon Database Group is hiring multiple interns for a special summer project in distributed main-memory database systems at its Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania campus. We are building a new system to support fast transaction processing workloads and on-line analytics + machine learning. It will be an intense 12-week internship where we will perform “brain surgery” on open-source software. The result will be a prototype new database system that will demonstrate performance competitive with the existing main-memory database systems. We believe this project will be an amazing experience for all involved – by the end of the summer the group will have a deep knowledge of database internals and research experience. Each intern will work closely with the CMU Database faculty and students to build new data management systems and tools.

We especially encourage students who are interested in pursuing PhD-level database research in the near future to apply.


Strong C/C++ and SQL programming skills is a requirement. Applicant must have completed at least one university-level database course. Research experience and familiarity with database systems and techniques are recommended. Positions are available for students currently residing in either the US or abroad. You do not need to be a US citizen to apply.


Interns will be paid a three-month summer salary (commensurate with skills and experience) and the cost of travel expenses.
