Carnegie Mellon Summer Project in Database Systems at Pittsburgh, USA

Last Date March 1

The Carnegie Mellon Database Group is hiring multiple interns for a summer project in database systems at its Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania campus. We are building a new open-source system that can support fast transaction processing workloads (OLTP) and large-scale analytical queries (OLAP) on a single database.

It will be a 12-week internship where we will develop the internal components for the DBMS.

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.


Applicants must have completed at least one university-level course on either databases management systems, operating systems, or distributed systems. MOOCs do not count.

Applicants will have some implementation experience in databases, operating systems, or distributed systems.

Applicants with strong C/C++ programming skills or experience with TensorFlow are also preferred.

Preferential consideration is given to applicants that have already contributed to the project.

Positions are available for people currently residing in either the US or abroad. You do not need to be a US citizen to apply nor do you need to be a current student at any institution.


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