Internship, Fellowship, or Volunteer Inquiries

You may reach Mark Abraham, our Executive Director via this page. We do not take phone calls or in-person inquiries about open positions. 

In addition to responding to open positions, you may contact us with inquiries about internship, fellowship, and volunteer opportunities. DataHaven works with several interns or external fellows each year.

For internship and research assistant positions, DataHaven has a strong preference for interns and fellows with external sources of funding (e.g., temporary work study, summer awards, students working directly under supervision of faculty for pay/stipend, fellowships from government or non-profit agencies/programs, and/or fellowships that are paid directly by a college or university that they attend). External funding must be provided through a recognized institutional or fellowship program, not self-funding. If you have external funding we encourage you to contact us well in advance of the start of the term. Given that DataHaven is a non-profit organization, these external sources of funding often help us expand our staff capacity and supervise additional interns/fellows without needing to allocate funding for a new position. During the past 5 years, approximately 90% of our interns and fellows have had external funding.

In recent years, DataHaven has hosted interns and fellows from many undergraduate and graduate programs including those at Brown University, Connecticut College, Emory University, Georgetown University, Harvard University, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Southern Connecticut State University, UAlbany, University of Connecticut, Wesleyan University, Williams College, and Yale University.

Independent research and service projects also may be proposed by individuals or teams (e.g., a research lab at a university). If proposing an independent project, please send an email with a detailed description of what project you propose to work on, the project timeline, your background and training in the area, a list of other individuals that you would be collaborating with, and how DataHaven might be able to help advise your work, contribute to your research, or co-author a study with your team. 

DataHaven is an equal opportunity employer. Please note that due to the small size of our organization and high volume of inquiries we receive, we are often unable to respond to inquiries about open positions and volunteer opportunities.

Other Opportunities
