Opportunities for Students

PRC has internship and employment opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students. Students work in tandem with staff to gain experience working in a professional research setting. We take great pride in the accomplishments of our student interns and employees. Many of our past students are employed in research or public services positions they were eligible for due to their experience at PRC.
