Summer Research Internship Program
Columbia Business School has completed its recruiting for the Summer of 2014 class. Please check back next January for the Summer 2015 program. Details about the program can be found at the Summer Research Internship page.
Past summer interns have gone onto PhD programs, and three have returned to work at Columbia Business School as Full-Time Research Associates.
Research Associates are full-time research staff members at Columbia Business School. They typically work on about three to five projects simultaneously (possibly supporting different faculty). However, they are also expected to maintain a thorough understanding of the substance of the research and to participate in every aspect of the process from idea generation to publication.
All currently-open positions are posted on the Jobs@Columbia website. (Search for Title: "Research Associates" and Department: "5110 - BUS Business".)
However, we are also continually reviewing applications. Even if no positions are currently open, we still welcome you to apply.
To apply, please send the following materials to email@example.com:
- academic transcripts (unofficial is fine)
- cover letter including research experience, research interests, and future career aspirations
Applications lacking any of these materials will not be considered.
If your skills, experience, and interests are a suitable match for our needs, we will contact you to schedule an interview.
Research Assistants are typically current Columbia students who are interested in working part-time on research during the academic year or during the summer. They generally work 10-15 hours per week, although that number may be fluctuate depending on the student's schedule and the project needs.
To apply, please check for open positions on Lionshare.
