Academic Year Research Assistants

New positions are announced as they open.  

Due to the special circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we currently are able to hire Harvard University students only in most circumstances. In the future, we anticipate that we will again welcome students and others from all academic backgrounds to join us as research assistants.

RAs 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, they 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 RAs’ skills.
