Our Student Fellow will collect, analyse and visualise data of current news items. The last two years a lot of effort of the data journalism department has gone to Covid-19, but other themes like climate, poverty, migration or inequality are also on the table. Our Student Fellow will do research together with an experienced data journalist. The scope of the research will be decided upon in consultation with the Student Fellow and will depend on their knowledge and experience.

We are looking for someone with:

  • Knowledge of Excel / Google Sheets
