  • Power modeling is a critical part of data center architectural analysis, and a crucial step for any power model is correlating to Silicon when available and improving the models to enable better architectural feature tradeoffs for future architectures. We are looking for a Research Intern to join our team with a focus on System-on-Chip (SoC) Power Modelling and Benchmarking. In this role, you will be responsible for understanding the key concepts of how power varies with various workloads and operating parameters for data center Advanced RISC Machine (ARM) based server SoCs. You will also be responsible for refreshing existing power models and improving the infrastructure to be more widely usable with ease. Applicants should have basic skills in computer architecture, digital design, and workloads/benchmarks.


  • Required Qualifications:
  • Currently enrolled in a master's or PhD program in Computer Architecture or a related STEM field.
  • Other Requirements:
  • Research Interns are expected to be physically located in their manager’s Microsoft worksite location for the duration of their internship.
  • In addition to the qualifications above, you’ll need to submit a minimum of two reference letters for this position. After you submit your application, a request for letters may be sent to your list of references on your behalf. Note that reference letters cannot be requested until after you have submitted your application, and furthermore, that they might not be automatically requested for all candidates. You may wish to alert your letter writers in advance, so they will be ready to submit your letter.
  • Preferred Qualifications:
  • Experience or completed courses in computer architecture, digital design, and workloads/benchmarks.
  • Proficiency in Python programming and ability to write clean, efficient, and well-documented code.
  • Be able to collaborate effectively with other researchers and product development teams.
