Listening to Leaders (LTL) Survey Team Internship — Summer 2023

The Listening to Leaders team is seeking research assistants for Summer 2023! 

AidData’s Listening to Leaders program collects 360 degree feedback on development priorities, progress, and performance from the perspective of leaders in low- and middle-income countries. We research convergence and divergence in development priorities; barriers and opportunities to advance reforms; performance of development partners; and evidence-informed policymaking. Check out our program page for past reports and datasets.

Research assistants on the LTL team contribute to research projects by conducting research on the sampling frame, identifying the names, positions, and contact information of leaders working in government, development organizations, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and academia. They also often perform special tasks—everything from gathering twitter data on ministers across the world, to checking translations and developing innovative new search tactics for the team.

This position begins in May 2023. RAs are expected work 30-40 hours a week. The starting pay rate is $12 per hour. Experienced RAs are eligible for promotions and corresponding pay increases up to $15/hr. All interns must be based in the U.S. to be hired into paid positions. Those hired before March 10 may be eligible for summer housing. A remote work option is available for those unable to work in Williamsburg.
