Quantum Undergraduate Research at IBM and Princeton combines academic research in quantum science and engineering at Princeton with industry experience at IBM Quantum in Yorktown Heights.

This unique 12 week program consists of six weeks of academic research at Princeton working at any quantum-related group followed by six weeks at IBM working in the quantum computing group at Yorktown Heights. Housing and a stipend are offered at both sites. The whole program will be complemented by a summer seminar series with talks across a large range of topics in quantum information and different quantum platforms. This is a great opportunity for undergraduate students to both perform cutting edge quantum research and get industry experience in a single summer.

Over the course of 2020, Princeton University has learned a lot about how to make their interns feel better connected with one another and with colleagues across IBM Research, and plan to apply these lessons to the 2021 program. IBM and Princeton University are planning primarily for an in-person QURIP program in 2021, but are prepared to transition to a remote program if necessary.

The application deadline is Friday, Jan. 15, 2021. Administrative inquiries should be sent to Sandra Lam, This program is sponsored by IBM and the Princeton Quantum Initiative.

Requirements to apply include:
1. Recommendation letter
