Research assistantship is available every academic year, and open to currently enrolled John Jay College MPA students. Our full-time MPA core faculty interviews interested students to work with them on research projects throughout the academic year. Under faculty supervision, research assistants develop capabilities necessary for policy analysis, case studies, qualitative and quantitative analysis. While building such skills, research assistants also receive financial compensation for their work. If you are interested in applying for a research assistantship position, please monitor your John Jay College student emails. Vacancies typically open at the beginning of the semester and remain open until they fill.
