Instead, students apply directly to specific departments, like Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, Mathematics, Aeronautics and Astronautics and Mechanical Engineering. Deadlines for most programs are December 15. Engineering master’s students at MIT can also do research assistantships at CSAIL. Postdoctoral Opportunities Potential postdocs should explore our research and reach out directly to the principal investigator you’d like to work with! NOTE: CSAIL doesn't generally accept interns or research assistants, especially non-MIT students. In the rare event that a faculty member chooses to take one on, preference is given to MIT students.
