Student Fellows Program and Internships

The Think Tank offers Student Fellow positions and internships to work with the MacroPolo team on extensive research and writing projects, digital content and products, and technical and multimedia efforts. These are great opportunities to join an energetic and entrepreneurial team to help build a leading platform on China’s political economy.

Although general research is required, Student Fellows also have the chance to lead on significant projects and potentially co-publish substantial work. Previous cohorts have gone on to finance, consulting, government, and managerial positions at MacroPolo.

The Student Fellows program is conducted in partnership with the University of Chicago and is available to applicants who are currently enrolled at either the undergraduate or graduate level. Internships are available to all applicants and are dependent on specific needs, projects, and qualifications.

Qualified applicants should have a demonstrable interest in economics/finance, political science, policy, or other social sciences, as well as comfortable working with data and doing qualitative and quantitative research. Familiarity with China and Chinese language is strongly preferred.

These are paid positions and are available on a rolling basis throughout the academic year and summer. Interested candidates should send their CV and other relevant materials to
