About the Microsoft Research Fellowship

Microsoft Turing team is inviting applications for the Research fellow position. This is a 1-year position extendible by another year, where the fellows can work on cutting edge problems in Natural Language Processing, Deep Learning, and large-scale engineering. The program will expose the fellows to both applied research and software engineering. There will be opportunities to publish at top conferences as well as productize the inventions.

The Turing team offers extensive training to the RFs with a focus on the three critical areas of skill building: engineering mentorship, research mentorship, and communication/story telling. Together, the program addresses many important topics such as:

Tech Industry Effectiveness and Career Development: Team culture/philosophy, leveraging Microsoft resources, core competencies for research and engineering, setting short/medium-term career goals.
Engineering Skills: Development environment setup, Code reviewing, collaborative coding, designing code for testability, how to build a product, product lifecycle, software architecture, benchmarking, etc.
Research Skills: Paper presentation and discussion, brainstorming ideas, research philosophies, paper writing and reviewing, mentoring with graduate studies application process (for interested fellows).
Communication: Storytelling, presentation, public speaking, panel discussion, inclusive and productive meetings, influencing for impact, Writing effective emails, Networking

About the team 

Microsoft Turing works on large neural models for text and multimodal processing, and building products for Bing, Office and other divisions of Microsoft based on these models. It is a diverse and inclusive team of engineers and applied scientists working on various aspects of generative AI, from model training and application building to large-scale systems engineering, model optimization, and responsible AI.

Culture: With RFs from Microsoft Research Lab India and other product divisions of Microsoft in the same premises, Turing RFs will get to interact with a competent and vibrant peer group of 70+ other fellows. They will also be able to attend talks by eminent scientists, interact with the top researchers and engineers at Microsoft, and from all over the world, who visit the lab. There are common social and cultural activities as well as common mentoring sessions (such as on scientific writing or engineering skills) that the fellows will be able to participate in. Check out this podcast by Shruti Rijhwani, one of our ex-RF, with Dr. Vivek Sheshadri from MSR India, on the program.
