Exciting Internship Opportunity for Economics Majors

WTRI is a company started by university academics in order to create a path for applying research on decision making and performance to problems in organizations and companies.   The research of WTRI principals had become known in the industry and many clients such as IBM, Siemens, most of the major mining companies and some large pharma companies have taken advantage of their expertise. We have also published a number of papers in academic journals and books on the topic of the cognitive science of work and business.

WTRI is seeking between 2 to six undergraduate interns who would like an opportunity to work on client engagements while at the same time building up their own resumes with research experience.

This opportunity would be particularly beneficial to those students who expect to continue their education at the graduate level or who wish to have exposure to actual commercial work with clients. Preference will be given to economics majors with strong quantitative skills or programming experience. Experience with Virtual Worlds is a plus. Experience in applications for business very desirable as are skills in statistical programs and advanced mathematics or mathematical modeling.

Compensation is $12-$15 per hour for up to 20 hours a week.

WTRI is seeking individuals who are mature, inquisitive, reliable, self-directed and find the subjects of decision making, performance and business interesting. The company culture is relaxed with a belief in open communications among colleagues so a sense of humor is an advantage.
