Just before the CCC Camp this year, we came up with this idea: Why not invite people to Recurity Labs and allow them to do their own research together with the team on site? Essentially, we thought that people, especially students, with interesting ideas are often serving some intern job while using their spare time to research topics they are really fascinated with.
Accordingly, Recurity Labs now offers the following research position:
You work at Recurity Labs Berlin on your own topic, receiving regular (shitty) student pay for doing what you want. The rights to your work and resulting publications stay yours, you just give permission to Recurity Labs to use your results in our own work. You also present your progress on a regular basis internally. Additionally, you may book Recurity Labs people to help you with your project. What work we do for you, is largely your choice.
We realize that there may be interested people out there who don't know what topic they should propose but still fancy the idea in general. We can certainly provide a few suggestions if you tell us what skills and areas of interest you have.
If you are interested, send a short summary of who you are and an abstract about your topic to firstname.lastname@example.org.
