Digital Government Student Research Positions
Professor David Eaves is hiring a number of paid research assistants to work on projects related to digital government, civic technology, and public-sector innovation. Selected students will work with Harvard faculty and industry practitioners on a variety of projects that analyze the impact of growing digital trends on government organizations. In addition to overseeing their assigned project(s), students will attend regularly scheduled reading groups as a cohort. These reading groups will allow students to discuss their work, receive input from other student researchers, and learn about ongoing digital government initiatives.
Government Code Sharing
Governments are increasingly sharing and jointly managing code bases for critical systems with other government entities. While numerous technical questions arise from this practice, questions of collective governance will be equally important and have not been closely examined. If such shared code bases should, or are to, emerge as a common practice it is important governments make informed decisions about how to set up governance structures that will facilitate sharing, address concerns of privacy, security, and sustainability along with a possible host of other issues. This work has been generously sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation.
2021 Digital Services Convening
