On-Campus Opportunities

BAIR Research Mentoring Program

We at the Berkeley AI Research Lab (BAIR) invite you to apply for the undergraduate AI research mentoring program. The program matches undergraduates studying computer science who are curious about AI with graduate student mentors. 

If you are not currently involved in undergraduate research, but are interested in participating AI research as an undergraduate in the future, or are interested in a career in this field, this can be a great way to learn more!

You may apply by filling out this form.

Please fill out the application by the end of this week! We will contact you around next week after if we are able to match you with a mentor.

Duolingo is hosting an open virtual career showcase on Thursday, April 9th from 4:30 - 5:00 p.m. EDT, for students to learn more about what it's like to work at Duolingo. We'll be sharing insight into our mission and culture, as well as hearing from some of our current Software Engineers.

If you are interested in attending, sign up here. We'll send a zoom link 24 hours before the event.
