Department:Division of Research & Faculty DevelopmentPre-Employment Screening:Education, IdentityJob Function:Research Duties & Responsibilities:Are you the kind of curious person who wonders how firms use supply chain finance tools to bind their suppliers, how governments work with the private sector and international agencies to build toll roads and aluminum smelters, what kind of accounting techniques Apple uses, and how entrepreneurs work with investors? If you are curious about business and what drives today’s leading organizations and you like to write, consider working in the Case Research and Writing Group (CRG) at Harvard Business School (HBS).

Our mission is to support faculty by providing high quality, high value, efficient, and innovative case research, development, and writing. We work closely with our faculty clients, collaborating on cutting edge case studies used in MBA and Executive Education classrooms at HBS and around the world. 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 and participate in CRG-level activities such as recruiting, training, and mentoring.
