Join the Undergraduate Research Committee at our semi-annual research mixer! This will be a great opportunity for students and faculty members to meet to discuss their research interests, with the goal of establishing mentor-mentee relationships for next semester.
If you are a faculty member who has mentored student researchers before, or are new to the mentoring process, we hope you can come meet the next group of student researchers!
If you’re a student interested in starting a research project, come learn more about the opportunities available at City Tech.
We hope to see you in N119 on 12/4 at the end of the first day of the Student Research Poster Session.

Winter/Spring 2014: Code Switch
|More information about this job:|
|NPR’s Code Switch is one of the largest teams in the country reporting on some of the most fascinating topics of our day: race, ethnicity and culture. As the intern for Code Switch, you’ll be working with a diverse, fun team of journalists doing path-breaking coverage of these subjects. And while we can’t promise you’ll emerge Internet-famous, let’s just say there’s a really good chance.
You’ll work with top national correspondents to produce digital packages, lead discussions on social media, contribute story ideas, and report and write stories for the team. As a hybrid broadcast and digital unit, Code Switch works with almost every division at NPR — every show, every desk, multimedia, news apps, marketing and communications, and more — offering a terrific perspective on every aspect of working for NPR News.
We’re looking for a candidate who is fascinated by the different ways that our cultural backgrounds affect our experiences of the world, and who can approach this topic as an explorer rather than an advocate. We seek strong writers with good social media instincts and a passion for community and conversation. A knack with technology and an eye for a good photo certainly won’t hurt your application.
Before applying, we strongly encourage you to read our Internship FAQ’s here. Please do not apply for more than 3 internships.
