Research Associate Program

Research Associates are HBI affiliates who carry out projects that support the institute’s mission. The HBI provides RAs with academic oversight, access to the HBI and the resources of Brandeis University. The HBI does not provide RAs with assigned work space at the institute or with financial support. Individuals may, however, apply for funding through any of the HBI programs. 

Applications to the RA program are by invitation only.
