Academic Year Research Assistants

New positions are announced as they open.  

Our academic year Research Assistant (RA) positions are open to all actively enrolled Harvard University students. While there are many ways to get involved that do not require being a Harvard student, such as applying to participate in a research sprint, or attending our remote events, the current RA positions are for Harvard students. Sign up for our newsletters to keep up-to-date with all of our opportunities. 

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.
