Tracking Underreported Financial Flows (TUFF) Internship

The Tracking Underreported Financial Flows (TUFF) team is hiring Research Assistants for Summer 2021 to work on a series of projects funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and USAID. Research Assistants will play a key role in assembling the world's most comprehensive dataset on Chinese official financing globally, across 19 years, and compiling data on official development finance from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Data produced by Research Assistants will be used to assist policymakers at USAID and other institutions to better understand the scale and scope of development and commercial finance from non-traditional donors.

Students from all backgrounds are welcome to apply to the internship. Proficiency in foreign languages is a plus, especially in Chinese, Spanish, French, Arabic, Korean, and Japanese languages. Interns will work unpaid for the first 60 hours and are then eligible to become research assistants who are paid $8/hr. Experienced RAs are eligible for pay increases up to $12/hr. All interns must be based in the U.S. to be hired into paid positions.

Interns and Research Assistants are expected to work remotely for a 30 hours/week in the summer, with the potential to continue work in the fall at 10 hours per week. For further information, please contact Kyra Solomon at or Sheng Zhang at
