At the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, we conduct rigorous research and teach people of all ages–from preschoolers to CEOs–the skills they need to build healthy relationships, make sound decisions, and perform at their best. We are always looking for talented people to join our team. The overarching aims of the Center’s research program are to: (1) promote optimal learning, working, and living environments for children and adults using skill-based social and emotional learning (SEL) tools and programs; and (2) evaluate the effectiveness of these tools and programs and the mechanisms by which they have their impact. Much of the scholarship on emotional intelligence was first developed at the Center, as was RULER, our approach to curricula and training programs that integrate SEL into school organizations. RULER is designed to improve educational environments as well as to enhance the content of learning. These efforts are achieved by working with the broader community of SEL practitioners, researchers, and advocates including the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), as well as with a rapidly growing network of participating educators, administrators, students, and parents. Each year, we have many volunteer and employment opportunities available. Due to the many requests for positions that we receive, we are not able to respond to all inquiries.
