Chief Science Office Overview
The Chief Science Office (CSciO) was established in the FHI 360 Executive Office in 2016 to provide the vision, strategic leadership, and direction to sustain the quality of science at FHI 360 and to grow FHI 360’s portfolio of scientific work, including a full range of research and evaluation capabilities (human, social, methodological, and technological) in both the natural and the social sciences. The Chief Science Office is staffed by the Chief Science Officer, the Principal Economist, and a Communications Manager. The Principal Economist also plays a central role in FHI 360’s social impact reporting initiative, working closely with the Chief Operations Office.
FHI 360 has an exciting opportunity for an internship in the Chief Science Office under the guidance of Annette Brown, FHI 360’s Principal Economist, and working closely with the Communications Manager. The research intern will serve as a research assistant tasks and a communications assistant for research-related communications. The research will include performing simple data analysis, creating tables and graphs, writing sections of reports, and preparing PowerPoint presentations. Research tasks will also include identifying and summarizing documents to support background analysis and write blog posts. The intern will occasionally communicate with researchers both inside of and outside of the company in person, by phone, and over email. Other professional duties include formatting and revising CVs, creating and updating project trackers, assisting with logistics for events, searching public image files, and others. The intern may be asked to attend outside events via webinar and take notes or tweet.
This paid, full-time internship is ideal for recent graduates who want to obtain professional experience while exploring the job market, or for current students who are taking a semester off in order to gain professional experience. During the four months of the internship, the intern will: build their writing skills and publish two or more blog posts for the R&E Search for Evidence blog; conduct qualitative and quantitative data analysis and co-author one or more internal reports with FHI 360’s Principal Economist; learn how to use social media effectively for disseminating research information; and become familiar with new research and evidence in multiple human development sectors through reading and webinars. The internship is based in FHI 360’s Washington, DC office and will be performed remotely until the office is re-opened.
