MIT Sloan Predoctoral Opportunities

MIT Sloan is building a group of highly skilled, collaborative, and motivated individuals to conduct research with our faculty as full-time predoctoral research assistants for a period of one to two years. Our intention is to provide experience in and exposure to academic research at a top-tier institution, with the goal of assisting predocs in determining whether an academic or research career is right for them. We will also provide guidance on admission to top PhD programs.
