Joining the Research

CURRENT STUDENTS AT HARVARD AND NEARBY UNIVERSITIES:

The China Project recruits student researchers for specific studies and we welcome inquiries from current undergraduate and graduate students at any of Harvard's schools about contributing to Project research. We currently especially encourage inquiries from students with backgrounds and interests in economics, atmospheric science, environmental health, wind and solar energy resources and technologies, and electricity transmission and distribution. 

We strongly welcome inquiries from Harvard students about advising theses and dissertations related to atmospheric environment in China or in a U.S.-China context, including in economics, energy, emissions, air quality, health, law, policy, and other fields. 

On occasion we have involved student researchers from nearby universities (to date including MIT, Boston U., Brandeis, and Tufts), but there has to be a very good match of interests. 


PROSPECTIVE HARVARD STUDENTS:

The China Project is a research program, not a degree-granting entity of Harvard University. To become a student, you must apply to a department or school of the university; see the admissions page of the main Harvard website. The "Environmental Course Guide" on the website of the Harvard University Center for the Environment gives guidance on environment-related courses and programs across the university.


PROSPECTIVE HARVARD POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHERS:

The Project does not have a formal fellowship program, but recruits post-doctoral researchers in specific research areas as studies progress and participants' interests evolve. We welcome inquiries about post-doctoral research from those with strong academic and research records related to our current research areas, described here. Chinese language skills are usually required. We especially encourage inquiries in atmospheric chemistry, wind and solar energy resources and technologies, electricity transmission and distribution, and economic modeling.
