Looking for Student Research Fellows

Join us June 17-August 2,  2024 $20 per hour  
Set yourself apart while gaining ethnographic research experience. Organizations are turning to ethnographic researchers more and more as they look to build inclusive and diverse workplace cultures. The Lemelson-MIT Program (LMIT) is hiring up to six MIT students to take part in an exciting ethnographic program where they will meet, interview, and record participants who are engaged in an invention education workshop. Our student researchers will receive guidance and support, including opportunities for learning the basics of ethnographic research. Students will also have opportunities to hear from experts in the field with a background in product ethnography/UX.

Accepted students will be paid $20 per hour and will be expected to work up to 40 hours per week across a six-week period from June 17–August 2, 2023. Application preference is given for those who apply prior to January 24, 2024 at 11:59 pm ET. Positions will be first come, first served after this date. In support of LMIT’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we strongly encourage students from underrepresented groups to apply.
