Internship: Data

The National Endowment for the Humanities’ Chief of Staff is looking for qualified applicants for a Data Internship. A data intern’s responsibilities may include refining and assessing large data sets, preparing talking points on data, researching the state of data across humanities organizations, creating visualizations of data, and assisting with day-to-day office tasks. Graduate students and upper-class undergraduate students are encouraged to apply.

We are looking for interns with strong communication skills in addition to a passion for the humanities. Interns must be able to complete tasks in a timely manner, be professional, and pay close attention to detail. Experience working with Microsoft Excel, various visualization tools like Cartodb and Tableau, and cataloguing metadata appreciated. Our internships are unpaid, but we provide full reimbursement for work-related travel. We are looking for a commitment of at least 4 to 5 full days per week. Please send a resume, short writing sample (1-5 pages), and cover letter to Caitlin Green at cgreen@neh.gov. We strongly encourage that candidates submit one of the following types of writing samples: blog post, news article, press release, newsletter, short narrative writing piece, expository writing, detailed letter, memorandum or a short essay on a humanities topic.

Please allow at least four to six weeks prior to the date you wish to intern to allow proper consideration of your application.

If you have any questions, please call the NEH Office of Human Resources Volunteer/Intern Coordinator at 202 606-8415. We look forward to hearing from you.
