The University of Nebraska Public Policy Center (PPC) is hiring! Join a diverse interdisciplinary research team within the PPC that engages in a variety of research and consultation activities involving private and public sector partners. More details below.
Many of the PPC's projects include graduate research assistantships or undergraduate research opportunities. Graduate students and undergraduates assist with research and other project activities. Graduate students often work with the faculty and project directors to present and publish the research. Past students have gone on to serve as the executive director of the Nebraska State Bar Association, a renewable energy and commercial real estate attorney, and the director of private sector programs at a private operating foundation. We are always looking for talented and motivated students to work with our collaborative team of researchers, so contact the office if you would like to work with us.
Each semester, the PPC welcomes undergraduate students who have a desire to increase their knowledge, skills, and awareness in policy and research. One of our goals as a Center is to spark students’ interest in policy-based work by creating a learning experience and providing a variety of professional and career opportunities in policy and research, in order to help students become more engaged and confident about their place in policy and research. Each student is paired with a mentor who will provide a space for them to learn and grow by attending weekly mentoring sessions, group sessions, and project meetings related to their areas of interest. We look forward to our next class of Policy Scholars!
