Summer Intern, International Affairs with the National Association of Home Builders

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), a Washington, DC based trade association, is seeking an intern to provide support to International Affairs. The intern will explore the literature and data describing how developing countries create institutions for funding housing development and finance; track research from the International Monetary Fund, Dallas Federal Reserve Bank and other sources devoted to comparative international housing data; and use results to enhance the International Housing Association website, and publish results at NAHB’s Eye on Housing blog.

The ideal candidate will be an undergraduate student with basic statistical skills, including chart/map making, which is required to display collected data and highlight trends and contrasts among housing markets. Candidates should be familiar with database creation. Also, prior work experience with seasonal data and SAS is a plus. Familiarity with JSTOR, Google Scholar and other search tools is important. Candidates must be able to work independently and have strong project and time management skills. The internship will begin on Monday, June 6 and end on Friday, August 5. Apply here.
