Our aim is to give readers information about their neighbourhood compared with the national situation. For instance the fellow will collect, analyse and visualise the safety of roads, air pollution or the quality of education in neighbourhoods. The fellow will work together with a (data) journalist.

The fellow has knowledge of Excel and preferably also R or Python. It would be appreciated when a Fellow has experience with journalism.
