Join the Center as a Research Assistant

Please be aware that a Research Assistant (RA), Student or Full-Time, position requires commitment.

Due to the continuous and ongoing nature of many of the Center’s current research projects, Student RA’s must be prepared to be available during school vacations this includes academic/class and summer breaks.

Some of research projects will continue for years at a time; long-run commitment to Heckman’s initiatives (i.e., working through until graduation, or working 1-2 years before joining a graduate program) is highly recommended.

We accept rolling applications for general employment.  If you would like to be considered for a Student or Full-Time RA position, please follow the applicable link below and indicate in your submission which project you are interested in.

We do not accept applications for internships.
