Throughout the year, the Center offers work for highly motivated students in its offices at 50 Church Street and in the labs of our affiliated faculty across the campus. Opportunities range from providing administrative support and assisting staff with general office work and events to work on projects, such as coding and analyzing data, conducting research and literature reviews, and note-taking and producing report summaries of meetings.
As opportunities become available, we will share them on this page. Sign up to receive information on employment and internship opportunities.
Harvard Institute of Politics (IOP) Director’s Internship Program for Summer 2018
Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Executive Office of Education, Department of Early Education and Care
Co-Sponsored by the Center on the Developing Child
The Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is offering a unique opportunity for an undergraduate to work in a state early education agency. The intern will work across initiatives within EEC to support the agency’s strategic planning and ensure integration of current research in child development and adversity. This internship is a great opportunity for a student who is interested in the intersection between education research and public policy. The intern will become familiar with EEC’s policies, programs, and grants that support the early education workforce. He or she will also review resources developed by the Center, particularly those focusing on adult learners and the role of adults in children’s lives. Opportunities to share feedback with senior leadership will be provided, as will opportunities to visit programs and discuss EEC’s professional recommendations with the field. The ideal candidate is organized, independent, a strong writer and communicator, and a team player.
