The website has gotten a facelift! If you've been to our site before you might notice some changes. The most significant change is in our blog backend, making sharing our great research and new tool releases easier with the internet. Another big shift is consolidating all of our presentation material, published articles, and other bits and pieces into one single resources section. Last but not least, we've included a teams section at the bottom of the main page so you can get to know us.

Internships for Winter 22/23

Margin Research is proud to announce our Winternship 2022/2023 program. Applicants may apply by sending us an email with their resume and a brief description of why they want to work with us at [email protected].

The Winternship program is a short and remote internship over your school's winter break. This is meant as a fun task to do in your free time, between holiday festivities with your family and friends. Individuals must have at least three weeks free to work on a chosen project and some experience relevant to the chosen project. A bounty of up to $2500 is granted to participants who successfully attempted their project.

A Winternship typically starts in mid-December after most university semesters come to a close and ends after 3-6 weeks when university spring semesters commence.
