About Northeastern: Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and a world leader in experiential learning. The same commitment to connecting with the world drives our use-inspired research enterprise. The university offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Our campuses in Charlotte, N.C., San Francisco, Seattle, and Toronto are regional platforms for undergraduate and graduate learning and collaborative research. Northeastern pursues advanced research in security and materials at the Innovation Campus in Burlington, Massachusetts, and in coastal sustainability at the Marine Science Center in Nahant, Massachusetts.
About the Opportunity: In late 2018, the Northeastern Center for Entrepreneurship Education (NUCEE) initiated the Mosaic Fellowship. The Mosaic Fellowship is a one-year position designed to address the then current needs of Mosaic and the student-led Mosaic Groups in Northeastern's entrepreneurship ecosystem. The Mosaic Fellows will support the experiential programming that is the distinguishing characteristic of Northeastern University's entrepreneurship ecosystem. The Mosaic Fellowship is ideal for a recent undergraduate or graduate alum with experience in Northeastern's entrepreneurship ecosystem.
The Mosaic Fellowship emphasizes listening to and providing for the needs of the community, and therefore each Mosaic Fellowship will begin with a specific focus and will seek candidates with the skills and interests relevant to that focus. It's also important for the Mosaic Fellow to be able to work independently and across disciplines within the University. The Mosaic Fellowship beginning in September 2019 will focus on community building, marketing, brand and program development.
