About Borealis AI

Borealis AI is the R&D arm of RBC, and consists of a team of researchers, research engineers, data scientists, and software developers dedicated to solving today’s leading problems in machine learning and artificial intelligence. With a focus on curiosity-driven research, our team is dedicated to advancing the state-of-the-art by publishing at top-tier conferences, developing impactful products with the potential to reach millions of people, and supporting the broader AI community.

Borealis AI has partnered with Mitacs to offer internships in a collaborative setting between our labs and a Canadian university. This program requires that both applicants and their academic advisors submit a proposal to Mitacs for peer review. As such, it is recommended that applicants initiate this process with Borealis AI at least 6 months before the intended internship start date.

How to apply:

Submit your application to mi.research@borealisai.com and provide the following: 

  • Please use subject line: Mitacs Internship – [your full name]
  • Information about your home institution (university / department / address / country).
  • The name and contact details of your academic advisor at your home university.
  • A short (500-word max.) description of your proposed research. Note that a lengthier proposal will be required at a different stage for submission to the Mitacs peer-review process and this will be prepared in collaboration with your academic advisor.
  • If you are applying from abroad and you already have a collaborator at a Canadian university with whom you wish to pursue this internship, please provide their name, institution and contact information. If you don’t have a Canadian academic counterpart, please make note of that in your message. Every effort will be made to find a suitable academic partner for your project.
