Public Sector Data Science Internship apps due Feb. 1

Student applications are being accepted through Feb. 1 for the Public Sector Data Science Internship hosted in summer 2018 by the Ohio Education Research Center, a collaborative of the John Glenn College and the Center for Human Resource Research.

The program is designed for rising juniors and seniors at Ohio State interested in exploring careers in policy research and evaluation. Participants will receive instruction on data-based methods to investigate policy problems, and be assigned to a partner state agency in Columbus for the summer. The program allows students to discover the exciting work that the Ohio Education Research Center and its affiliate partners are engaged in, and gives students practical experience with theory they learn in college classes.

Applicants should be from a relevant discipline that includes both social science research methods and some basic computer programming skills. The selection committee will examine transcripts and prior work experience and look for a combination of the following: courses/skills in education policy, some exposure to evaluation and economics courses, and some experience with statistical programming such as STATA or R. Preference will be given to Glenn College students who have taken at least 3010, 3000, and a statistics class.
