Instructions on how to apply for positions are posted within the job descriptions below (PDF files). Start dates are flexible, and the positions will remain open until filled.
Summer Research Assistant - Survey Research (several placements available every summer, including Summer 2023)
Note: Experience in survey research is not required. Applicants with expertise analyzing or using data in ways that are related to our Community Index reports (e.g., geospatial data, demography, qualitative interviewing, data journalism) also will be considered for these Summer Research Assistant positions. For interns and summer research assistants, hourly pay, if applicable, is set each year using a pay scale based on years of education; however, we receive many applications from individuals with external sources of funding in which pay is set by the sponsor of the funding award (please see below).
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 summer research assistant positions, DataHaven has a preference for interns and fellows with external sources of funding (e.g., temporary work study, summer awards, students working under supervision of faculty for course credit, and/or fellowships that are paid directly by a college or university that they attend). 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.
In recent years, we have hosted interns and fellows from colleges and universities including Connecticut College, Georgetown University, Harvard University, Southern Connecticut State University, University of Connecticut, Wesleyan University, Williams College, and Yale University. 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.
Although we rarely work with volunteers, independent research and service projects also may be proposed. If proposing an independent project, please be as specific as possible about what you propose to work on and how we might be able to help advise your work, contribute to your research, or co-author a study.
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.
If you have a combination of quantitative analysis skills, experience working with public data, and a professional background in the development and use of neighborhood-level information resources, please feel free to email us your CV/resume if you would like. We will try to notify you if a relevant new position opens.
