Join the NCGrowth team as a graduate student analyst
NCGrowth is recruiting excellent, highly-motivated students to work on applied economic development research and business technical assistance projects in rural North Carolina. We hire graduate students from UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke, ECU, NCCU, NC State, and UNC-Pembroke. Each year we also hire one undergraduate intern from NCCU.
Analysts have the opportunity to work with NCGrowth staff, faculty, and community and business leaders on impactful projects such as:
– Conducting a feasibility study for a multi-county food hub
– Assisting a rural community in leveraging natural and cultural assets to promote tourism and economic development
– Developing a new growth strategy for an entrepreneurial technology company
– Helping a manufacturing company develop a low-cost alternative to traditional cook-stoves in refugee camps
Analysts work on a remote basis with occasional required travel. Compensation is $20/hr. Typical projects consist of 100 hours of work done over the course of a semester, but may extend longer depending on the analyst’s schedule and the project scope.
