RA Posting: Tech Institute Seeks Research Assistants for Spring 2018
Open to current Georgetown Law students

The Tech Institute is looking for student research assistants to contribute to our policy work and active calendar of events during the Spring 2018 semester. RAs will work under the supervision of the Institute's Executive Director, Alexandra Givens, in partnership with the Institute's faculty, fellows and staff.  

RA positions are open to current students at Georgetown Law with an interest in the intersection of technology, law and public policy. No technical expertise is required, and we welcome students with diverse, non-tech interests who want to gain deeper understanding of how technology is affecting their area of policy and law.

Topics RAs can expect to work on during the Spring 2018 semester include:

  • Internet policy and competition: net neutrality; broadband privacy; broadband infrastructure; our Platforms Symposium coming up in February 2018.
  • Technology and justice:  the use of technological tools to promote access to justice; studying how responsible data sharing and analytics can help address the justice gap.
  • Entrepreneurship and inclusive innovation: support our partnership with the D.C. Mayor's Office to provide strategic recommendations on improving an ecosystem that supports diverse women entrepreneurs. 
  • Machine learning and AI:  support our work on the regulatory landscape for public and private data sharing; help prepare for an April 2018 panel on the threats and the promise of AI.
  • Intellectual property:  U.S. and international patent law; intellectual property issues arising from machine learning and AI.
  • Support key events like our Friday Tech Speaker Series and our annual summer program, Tech Foundations for Congressional Staff.
