RA Posting: Tech Institute Seeks Research Assistants for 2017-2018 Academic Year
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. RAs will work under the supervision of the Institute's Executive Director, Alex 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 in 2017 include:
- Internet policy: net neutrality; broadband privacy; broadband infrastructure; bridging the digital divide
- Technology and Justice: the use of technological tools to promote access to justice; analyzing the use of technology in the criminal justice system
- Intellectual property: U.S. and international patent law; intellectual property issues arising from machine learning and AI
- Entrepreneurship and inclusive innovation.
- The regulatory landscape for public and private data sharing, fintech and other emerging technologies.
Applicants must submit a resume, cover letter, writing sample, and the name and email address of two references (including at least one Georgetown-affiliated reference) to TechInstitute@law.georgetown.edu. Your cover letter should indicate your areas of interest, relevant experience/coursework, and your expected availability (i.e. hoped for number of hours per week). Please also include your expected month/year of graduation.
- Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through September 1, 2017. Students are encouraged to apply early.
If you have questions, please contact the Institute’s Executive Director at Alexandra.Givens@law.georgetown.edu.
