Gain hands-on experience in the most popular topics of development impact research
Conduct meta-analysis research and gain statistics experience
Make a tangible difference in the international development community
AidGrade is offering a summer internship opportunity for undergraduates interested in development and aid effectiveness. Join our dynamic research team!
As an AidGrade intern, you will not only gain research experience but also have many other avenues for growth – managing volunteer researchers, organizing events, and making connections with other international development academic research groups. Have other skills such as web design or social media? Working with a start-up will give you the freedom and responsibility to take on self-initiated projects!
Duration: Summer, with a minimum commitment of 4 weeks. Part-time positions available.
Qualifications: Undergraduate with strong interest in international development. Statistical or meta-analysis background preferred, but not required.
Responsibilities: The intern will be responsible for sifting through impact evaluations of development programs and collecting data from them. Responsibilities will grow with the intern and training will be provided. Work can be done remotely, but there is a preference for candidates willing to work in the Washington, DC office. The ideal candidate has a good understanding of or a strong passion for international development and standard economic methods of causal attribution.
Deadline: Monday, May 20, 2013. Please submit a resume to Timothy Catlett. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and early application is encouraged.
Contact Christine Shen to learn more! Other volunteer opportunities may be available to those with different qualifications.
