I’m Looking for a Little Help Out There

By Rick Hess — May 27, 2011 1 min read

Hey, folks, so I’ve got an interesting opportunity to announce as we head into the Memorial Day weekend. I just had an unexpected opening emerge, creating a rare and potentially very cool opportunity for a new research assistant to join my little AEI edu-team. I’m looking for someone smart, hard-working, and responsible who’s eager to explore the world of edu-policy from the front row. If you’re just starting out, are intrigued by the chance to plunge into an array of K-12 and higher education issues, and want to see the world of education policy from a prestigious D.C. address (17th & M, to be exact), please shoot a note to my crack research associate Daniel Lautzenheiser at dlautz@aei.org. One of the perks, for those interested, is that Daniel and his colleagues on AEI’s edu-team are some of the nicest, smartest folks with whom you could imagine working. Oh, yeah, and one other perk that just may be worth a mention are AEI’s famous chocolate chip cookies.
