The Centre for Humanitarian Data is looking for data fellows for June and July 2019.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has a Centre for Humanitarian Data in The Hague, the Netherlands to help increase the use and impact of data in the humanitarian sector. The vision is to create a future where all people involved in a humanitarian emergency have access to the data they need, when and how they need it, to make responsible and informed decisions.
The Centre will soon host its second class of Fellows in The Hague in June and July 2019. Through this programme, Fellows will come together to design and deliver targeted projects that contribute to the overall goals of the Centre. The 2019 Fellows will focus on four areas where the Centre is seeking new perspectives, insights and partnerships including: Business Strategy, Data Science (education data), Predictive Analytics, and Statistics (disability data).
Fellows will need to be available for the full term. Workspace and meeting rooms will be made available to the Fellows during this period at the Centre’s location in The Hague Humanity Hub. Fellows may also use the workspace before or after the fellowship period as needed and as agreed with a supervisor.
Fellows will receive a lump sum amount to cover travel and living expenses during the two-month term.
