Postdoctoral Research Opportunities
If you have a specific project in mind that you’d like to collaborate with CAIDA on, you are welcome to submit your CV along with any materials (publications, code samples, references, etc) that would help us evaluate you for a postdoctoral research position here. Please send these materials along with a cover letter detailing the specific CAIDA projects in which you have interest to firstname.lastname@example.org
Graduate Student Internship Projects
Intern applications are currently accepted. In most cases, intern positions involve intensive coding for simulations of network models, and analysis of real network data. Successful interns may be later re-hired as postdocs.
Please also see our list of projects looking for students to see some work we’re hoping to get help on.

Per federal funding requirements of the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program, students must be a U.S. citizen, U.S. National, or a Permanent Resident of the United States to be eligible for REU positions.
Proposed Student Projects
We have a list of opportunities for students to participate in CAIDA research projects. We hope these projects looking for students can attract those interested in working at the forefront of Internet development, measurement, modeling, and research.
CAIDA supports a sabbatical program for Internet engineers, vendors, researchers, and faculty to take a brief respite from their normal day-to-day engineering, product development, or teaching duties, in order to lend their expertise to the advancement of larger Internet evolution issues.
