Student Research Assistant Positions at CLF
Throughout each academic year, the Center for a Livable Future provides opportunities for a limited number of Johns Hopkins University undergraduate and graduate students to work with staff and faculty as Research Assistants (RA). The duration of work is subject to work priorities and funding and it may not last for an entire academic year. During the academic year, RAs typically work with the Center between 8 and 19 hours per week. The hours required for each position are specified in the descriptions below. CLF compensates RAs at a rate competitive with other JHU student positions.
Research Assistants are important members of our team. They are involved in challenging work assignments and receive helpful supervision and mentoring from staff members. Work responsibilities can involve a range of skills and expertise, including: conducting scientific literature reviews; data collection, performing data analysis; contributing to the development of scientific papers and synthesis documents; providing project assistance for the Center's activities; and developing communication materials to inform education, advocacy and policy activities. Performing administrative support activities is also part of a RA’s scope of work. Our RAs are encouraged to attend CLF-sponsored seminars and lectures that may be scheduled throughout the year.
