Summer Posting: Tech Institute Seeks Summer Research Fellow to Work with Internet Founder Vint Cerf on Digital Preservation
Open to Georgetown Law students or other Georgetown students pursuing a graduate degree in a relevant field

The Tech Institute is looking for a student research assistant who will work with the Institute’s leadership and internet founder Vint Cerf on policy proposals relating to digital preservation. The project seeks to develop practical policy solutions (e.g. model legislation) to address the problem of a looming “digital dark age” – the loss of personal, business and government records that are recorded in specific file formats that may no longer be accessible or interoperable as technology evolves.

This is a paid position. The RA is expected to work 40 hours per week, for a period of 10 weeks over the summer. 

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis through April 15, 2018. We encourage you to apply early.
