The fellow will work with the undergraduate research assistants and support the affiliated faculty in the core research objectives of the Policy Lab. In addition, the fellow will also have the opportunity to teach an independent undergraduate course and to contribute to the broader intellectual community of Claremont McKenna College. The fellowship also will support the recipient’s research agenda.
