The Putnam exam is the most notorious college level competition, known for its difficulty. After a stand-out performance from Yale last year, we would like to make this competition more accessible. More information about the Putnam exam can be found here.
Dr. Andrew Yarmola of the Math department, and students William Ning, Ayush Tibrewal, and Grant Zhang have planned a weekly seminar that will be both accessible and useful for students with all levels of math contest experience. Whether you are an annual competitor or have no experience with competition level math or proofs, this will be a valuable experience. More information, as well as an interest form, can be found in the following form.
The skills from these seminars will be applicable in places far beyond the Putnam exam. You can develop skills in mathematical proofs, problem solving skills, and creativity with the techniques you learn in this seminar.
Dahl Research Scholars
Named in honor of the late Yale professor Robert Dahl, the Institution for Social and Policy Studies’ Dahl Research Scholars program provides fellowship support for highly driven, intellectually curious Yale College students to engage in policy- driven social science research under the guidance of an ISPS faculty mentor.
Launched in 2015-16, the year-long program is for students committed to positively influencing American public policy through research.
Participation in the program consists of two primary components.
Students will perform 8-10 hours of research assistance a week for their faculty mentor.
Students will work on independent projects concerning pressingpolicy issues. These projects culminate in the production of researchpapers by the end of the year that have the potential for publication,with several “checkpoints” throughout the program.
Over the course of the year, students receive feedback on their progress from the program’s director and their peers. Dahl Scholars receive a stipend through ISPS that compensates them both for their RA work and the time they allocate to their independent projects.
We ask that students identify a faculty mentor before they apply to the program and that their faculty supervisor submits a one-paragraph endorsement of the student's project — with confirmation of their willingness to mentor the student — before the application deadline. The program prioritizes applications from students whose work will significantly advance our understanding of American politics and public policy, though empirical projects from outside the American context will be considered.
Applications will be dueOctober 6, and we expect to send out acceptances by October 13.
We are looking to hire a team of undergrads to work with our Research Manager, Shannon Bradford and support the processing and analysis of the results from our National Early Childcare Workforce Survey. The National Early Childcare Workforce Survey (NECWS) is the largest-ever survey of the early childcare workforce in the United States. Launched in 2020, the survey was initially focused on studying COVID-19 transmission between children and adults in childcare settings. The results of the 2020 NECWS, published in Pediatrics, gained national media attention for uncovering that children in childcare programs presented no significant risk to adults. Today, the survey has expanded its focus to the well-being of the early childcare workforce more broadly.
Data from the 2023 NECWS is now ready to be processed. This is an exciting opportunity for undergraduate students at Yale to work with the Tobin Center for Economic Policy to process and analyze a fascinating dataset. Processing tasks may include running missingness analyses, building upon past cleaning scripts to process a dataset with new variables, and merging new data with past data. Analyses may include evaluation and descriptive statistics. Data analysis proficiency required. Proficiency in R strongly desired. Past research experience is a plus.
Would you like to learn the skills of a top-tier strategy consultant, while working in service of a client you know and love: Yale University? If so, we invite you to apply for the Yale University Swensen Fellows in Strategic Analysis program. Positions are currently available for full-time fellowships and summer internships to begin work in Summer 2024. As a Swensen Fellow, you would work on the most complex strategic challenges facing Yale and help University leaders to make decisions that advance Yale’s mission. You would work on a broad spectrum of topics including: defining and measuring excellence, setting priorities, improving performance, and allocating resources across the units that comprise Yale.
The Yale Herald is looking to recruit a Business Director and Business Team members! The Herald is a weekly publication run entirely by undergraduates at Yale since 1986. We publish in-depth, analytical reporting and include a mix of personal essays, interviews and profiles, arts and culture articles, creative writing, reviews, humor, and feature coverage of campus and local happenings. With a circulation of over 1000, the Herald is the second-highest circulated campus publication and is distributed free of charge throughout the Yale campus and New Haven businesses.
This year, we are looking to build a Business Team to help us with: (1) generating advertising revenue from local New Haven businesses, (2) obtaining UOFC funding, and (3) brainstorming creative ideas to increase our revenue. A strong Business Team is critical to our operation as we must cover biweekly printing costs.
