The GSP Operations Internship is open to master’s degree candidates who have work experience in a non-research field and who would like to be exposed to working in a research setting.
Placement will be in our NYC office. Interns work closely with senior-level staff with expertise in program design, program assessment, evaluation start-up, and technical assistance on program implementation. At MDRC, this important function is referred to as “operations” work; operations staff work closely with program sites and MDRC researchers to ensure the organizations participating in our evaluations have strong programs.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the summer operations internship will not be offered in 2021.
