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 are happy to hear from people who are interested in DataHaven or who already have an extensive background in our field of work, and we will try to notify you if a relevant new position opens.
Employment, Internship, Fellowship, or Volunteer Inquiries
You may reach Mark Abraham, our Executive Director via this page. By policy, 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.
Because we do not frequently post paid positions, we have 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). Like many other non-profit and governmental organizations, these programs can help us expand our staff capacity 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.
Independent volunteer and service projects also may be proposed, though are much less common. If proposing an independent project, please be as specific as possible about what you propose to work on and how we can help advise your work.
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.
