We’re looking for a data reporter intern interested in politics to join our newsroom this summer. You’ll be at the center of our coverage of the 2016 election; it’ll be crazy, hard and a lot of fun.
The internship will include conducting research and working closely with our politics writers, including Nate Silver, Harry Enten, Clare Malone and Farai Chideya. You’ll help us keep track of new polls and feed them into our forecast of the presidential election. And you’ll have the opportunity to pitch and write stories. Want to do stuff like this? Come join us.
You should be detail-oriented and have some reporting and research experience. You should also be familiar with electoral politics. If you can name the 13 Republicans currently running for president off the top of your head, you should apply.
The summer internship, which is paid, will run from approximately June 6 to Aug. 12, and the intern will be expected to work from our office in New York City. Current students at U.S. colleges or universities are eligible, as are recent graduates who were enrolled in at least one course in the semester before the internship.
The intern may work up to 40 hours per week (with some flexibility in schedule as needed).
