Internship Scheme

Our full-time internships are designed to enable current students in a quantitative field to translate their skills and expertise into an industrial setting. Interns will have a dedicated supervisor and work on a project designed to make the best use of their background and skills whilst developing their knowledge of quantum computing. We will support all interns to try and produce a concrete output by the end of the internship e.g. a paper, product, or software tool.

Riverlane offers two internship schemes, one aimed at undergraduate and master’s students, and another aimed at PhD students. Both schemes are now open, full details of which can be found on our internships page.
