Internship Program

Throughout the year, the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society welcomes students and others from all academic backgrounds to join us in our research as interns.

Interns are deeply and substantively involved in the operation of the Berkman Klein Center's research projects and efforts. Becoming invaluable contributors to the Center’s operation and success, interns conduct collaborative and independent research under the guidance of Berkman Klein staff, fellows, and faculty. Specific roles, tasks, and experiences vary depending on the Center's needs and interns' skills.
