The Jacobs Urban Tech Hub at Cornell Tech invites applications from innovative and dynamic researchers, technologists, and practitioners for our next cohort of Urban Tech Fellows. We seek individuals whose professional work and research interests align with the mission and goals of the Jacobs Urban Tech Hub—making cities stronger, fairer, and more resilient through responsible technology.


The primary responsibility of a Fellow is to conduct independent research on the use of technology in an urban environment, with a primary focus on New York City. As a Fellow you will also be expected to play a pivotal role in the Hub’s engagement work connecting with New York City’s urban tech community to foster a vibrant and inclusive ecosystem.


During 2024, the Urban Tech Hub will expand research, engagement, and education programming in two complementary areas: urban climate adaptation and urban tech innovation policy and management. These priorities reflect not only the urgent need for solutions that help cities adapt to climate change, but also the need to create more effective pipelines and protocols for rapid and responsible urban tech innovation. Fellows are encouraged to address these themes substantively in their proposals.
