Opportunities at the Cyber Policy Center
The Stanford Internet Observatory student research assistant program engages students with SIO’s dynamic research team, giving students the opportunity to work directly with SIO researchers on specific projects, collaborate with the broader team on rapid response projects, and develop their own research ideas. We give preference to students who have taken at least one of our courses and to students with functional fluency in at least one language other than English. Technical and data science skills are a plus.
Interested RAs must submit an online application and upload a copy of their CV/resume and transcript.
