The Federal Judicial Center is the federal courts’ agency for research and education. Congress established it by statute in 1967 as a separate organization within the federal judicial system at the request of the Judicial Conference of the United States (see 28 U.S.C. §§ 620–629). A nine-member Board, chaired by the Chief Justice of the United States, determines its basic policies.

Applicants must have completed an undergraduate degree, preferably in history, and enrollment in a graduate history program is desirable. Editorial experience a plus.
Salary and Benefits:
The exact hourly pay rate will be established on the basis of educational background but can be expected to be $11.74 per hour at a minimum. Appointment will be from about mid-May through August. Civil service rating is not required.
