Internships for 2020 at Bootlin

Note: these internship positions have been filled. We can only accept new interns from mid-June 2020 on. Don’t hesitate to apply if you are interested.

Bootlin penguins at workFor 2020, Bootlin proposes five internship topics, this time open to all students from the European Union, studying in European Universities.

All these topics will give you an opportunity to make substantial (and very useful!) contributions to an open-source project.

Here are the details about our internship topics:

As you can see, all these topics propose both a challenging technical opportunity, but also require strong interaction with the community of users and developers of free and open-source software used in embedded projects.

More details are available in the descriptions. The internships can start from February 2020, for a minimum duration of 4 months. These internships will take place either in our offices in Toulouse, Lyon or Orange, in France, depending on the topics. These internships are open to all students from the European Union.

    1. Hello Armin. Thanks for your question. Our internships are to be done on-site, in our offices, and therefore are only for students in the European Union, which can freely travel/work wherever they want in the EU.

        1. The squashfs support is still being worked on. For now, our intern has mainly written some user-space code to get some good understanding of the squashfs structure, and he started recently porting it over to U-Boot. I would expect that we can publish something in the next few weeks.
