Jobs and Internships


Research interns work directly with associates to analyze government budgets, collect and analyze data, conduct in-depth policy research, and compose presentations and reports.  Our recent publications address important topics in economic development, pre-k, financing the MTA, tax policy, capital spending, and solid waste collection.

Assignment to research projects and other activities will reflect staffing needs, as well as intern interest and experience. Applicants should study or have a background in political science, economics, public policy or administration, or urban affairs and be interested in the civic affairs of New York State and New York City. Applicants should be proficient in quantitative analysis and have excellent communication and writing skills.

Interns are expected to make a commitment of at least 18 hours per week and can maintain a flexible schedule throughout the semester. College and graduate school internships are paid, and opportunities exist for excellent candidates to stay on for additional semesters and to transition to full-time employment.

This is an exciting opportunity to be introduced to the workings of New York government, gain familiarity with the people and politics that make the State and City tick, and contribute to the larger public policy debates of the day.
