Current Undergraduate and Graduate Students

The China Project welcomes inquiries from Harvard undergraduate and graduate students about participating in our research and advising theses and dissertations. We encourage inquiries from students with backgrounds and interests related to our current research areas. Click here to learn more about the research areas.

Depending on the match in interests, we involve student researchers from other Boston-area universities on occasion.


Prospective Postdoctoral Fellows

The Project recruits postdoctoral researchers in specific research areas as our studies progress and the nature of the program evolves.

We welcome inquiries about postdoctoral research from those with strong academic and research records related to our current research areas. Please note that Chinese language skills are usually required. 

 

Prospective Undergraduate and Graduate 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.
