Our research is enriched through diverse, multidisciplinary teams that draw on a range of experiences and perspectives. We are committed to striving for diversity, equity, and inclusion. Research and analysis is enriched by diversity of talents, experiences, and perspectives. We encourage students from different racial/ethnic and cultural backgrounds, abilities, ages, gender, gender identity/expression, and other underrepresented groups to apply.

Position Description

RAND's Summer Associate Program introduces outstanding graduate students in aerospace/aeronautical, electrical or mechanical engineering, computer or information science, applied mathematics, data science, physics or other related STEM fields to the RAND Corporation, an institution that conducts research on a wide range of domestic and international social policy issues as well as national security problems. RAND employs about 100 engineers, computer/information scientists, physicists, and applied mathematicians.

Please note: Our Summer Associate program will be a remote/virtual program for summer 2022. Positions will only be available for students residing in the U.S. (excluding U.S. territories) for the duration of the summer associate assignments.
