The CIS Lab continually seeks the top minds and rising stars in cryptography research, with internship and postdoctoral research positions available starting in 2022. All positions will be in-person at our Sunnyvale office. Applications should be submitted by December 20 to guarantee full consideration.


Our internships typically are for about 12 weeks during the summer. For the duration of their internship, interns will be matched with one of our research scientists as a mentor. Summer housing assistance is available. Applicants should have demonstrated strong mathematical ability and be enrolled in a PhD program with a focus on cryptography, computer security, or theoretical computer science.
