Student Fellowship Opportunity for Spring 201713/12/2016
As T/AI shifts from strategy development to implementation, we are seeking students from the Washington DC area to join our team as fellows for approximately 15 hours per week this spring semester (January to April 2017 – flexible start date). Fellows will have a diverse and evolving range of responsibilities, flowing directly from the team’s emerging needs. As T/AI maintains a lean team, fellows will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution T/AI’s work and the transparency agenda. For example, fellows will play a key role in developing the design and content of our new website, lead on certain donor outreach and engagement through online mediums, support workshop design and execution (including logistics), and author material on T/AI program areas.
Strong candidates will have exceptional interpersonal skills, strong communication skills and experience, good research skills and enjoy working collaboratively. While our team is small, T/AI has a broad reach: we work closely alongside our donor members and are based in the OpenGov Hub, a co-working community of over 35 organizations dedicated to transparency, accountability, and civic engagement. Fellows will have the opportunity to continuously engage with this network to positively inform their work and to develop a nuanced perspective of the governance sector. Ideally, fellows will also share our passion to build vibrant citizen-state relationships around the world and thrive in a fast-paced “start-up” environment.
T/AI offers a $1,000 stipend for the semester for this position.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 6, 2017.
