Department:Division of Research & Faculty DevelopmentPre-Employment Screening:Education, IdentitySchedule: Job Function:Research Duties & Responsibilities:
Have you ever wondered how vineyards adapt in the face of climate change and technological evolution, nonprofits measure their impact, surgical teams cooperate, entrepreneurs work with venture capitalists, or companies plan for the workforce of the future? If you are curious about how business works and you like to write then please consider joining the Harvard Business School (HBS) Case Research & Writing Group (CRG) as a case researcher.
We work with HBS faculty members who write the case studies that help people consider what is involved in making such decisions. To do so, case researchers have the opportunity to visit many kinds of organizations all over the world and interview key decision makers about their most pressing challenges and organizational dilemmas. In addition to field work, we gather library research, and then we write. We are a tightly knit, highly collaborative, feedback-driven team. Case Researchers occasionally work on other course development projects (such as video supplements or teaching guides) and participate in CRG-level activities such as recruiting, training, and mentoring.
Organizational Context: The CRG is part of the Division of Research and Faculty Development (DRFD). The mission of the School is to educate leaders who make a difference in the world. Within HBS, by providing unparalleled faculty support, the DRFD helps to build and develop the faculty and facilitates the creation of enduring knowledge that shapes both business scholarship and the practice of business. As HBS’s largest administrative department, the DRFD houses approximately 250 full-time and part-time staff members. As a premier service organization, and in collaboration with colleagues across HBS, DRFD staff deliver high-touch, customized support to the faculty, demonstrating solid judgment and high standards of responsiveness and professionalism.
