We live in a time in which you have a choice - a choice where to spend your next summer, where to apply your talents and ideas, where to grow and look for self-fulfillment. We have multiple exciting internship opportunities and are looking for students passionate about secure software, hardware, and embedded systems engineering, security system research; and applied cryptography. If you would like to use what you learned in school, pick up new practical skills, and work on things that truly matter, apply here to learn more. You may discover this is exactly the place you are looking for ... to spend your next summer at ... or your whole career after you graduate. Group description: We, the members of the Secure, Resilient Systems and Technology Group, have made our choice. We are here. We are software, hardware and electrical engineers, cryptographers, computer scientists, system analysts and security architects who share a common passion for helping solve some of the hardest technical problems relevant to National security. We pursue innovative, high-impact, practical research in small, focused teams. We succeed by participating in all R&D phases, including problem analysis and innovative solution design, system architecture, rapid prototyping and field-testing, and ultimately transfer of our technology to DoD and Intelligence Community users, sponsors, and Industry. Being part of MIT, we also collaborate closely with academia and publish our research in top-tier venues. We are having fun. Internship description: As a summer research intern, you will help our group create advanced technologies for ensuring security and resiliency of next-generation mission-critical systems.
