The Education Week Research Center is hiring for a paid internship position. Interns work closely with a small but lively research staff to produce influential publications and web-based content that provide information on efforts to improve teaching and learning. The work is primarily research and analytic in nature, rather than editorial. Tasks may include compiling and analyzing education data from state and federal sources, conducting literature reviews, updating web content, reviewing Research Center products, and taking on a few clerical functions.
Candidates must be highly detail-oriented and display an interest in education and public policy.
Desired skills include:
•Working knowledge of Excel
•Ability to multi-task on a variety of assignments
•Strong analytical skills for reviewing education data and policies
•Attention to detail for managing data and contact information in spreadsheets
•Ability to communicate effectively
•Familiarity with surveys, and market research
•Familiarity with SPSS desirable but not required
Priority will be given to candidates who are current graduate students or recent college graduates. The internship will have a flexible start date between May and July. It will continue through January 2018 for 25-29 hours per week. A strong possibility exists for an intern wishing to continue beyond the fall semester to stay on through spring 2018. Our office is located just 7 miles north of downtown Washington, D.C., and within a 10-minute walk of the Bethesda, Maryland Metro station.
