Tracking Underreported Financial Flows (TUFF) Internship — Spring 2022

The Tracking Underreported Financial Flows (TUFF) team is looking to hire Research Assistants for Spring 2022 to work on a series of projects funded by USAID. Research assistants will play key roles in updating and expanding the world's most comprehensive dataset on global Chinese official finance across 19 years. Work will include but is not limited to: identifying new project-level data, building timelines for existing projects, and collecting geospatial information. Your work will assist policymakers at USAID and other partner institutions to better understand the scale and scope of development and commercial finance from nontraditional 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, or Japanese. The best TUFF Research Assistants are those with a keen attention to detail, strong time management, and the ability to extract key information from extensive sources.

Research Assistants are expected to work for 10 hours per week. Interns will work unpaid for the first 60 hours and are then eligible to become Research Assistants paid at $11/hr. Experienced RAs are eligible for promotions and pay increases up to $14/hr. All interns must be based in the U.S. to be hired into paid positions.
