Internship opportunity in Ethiopia

I’m looking for an intern to work on my “More Sweatshops for Africa?” project in Ethiopia, based in Addis. The position would be for ~12 weeks starting as soon as possible (ideally mid to late May). There is no salary but we cover travel, accommodation and living expenses.

This would be a great opportunity to get experience of how surveys are run in the field and to work in a fascinating country, Ethiopia. The job will be largely to help run three small but intense surveys and all associated administration. The intern will report to my in-country project coordinator.

Ideally the candidate would be a graduating or graduated college student with an interest in development, and hopefully some background in quantitative analysis (e.g. experience using Stata and MS Excel). MA students are welcome to apply but managing survey teams might not be using your skills effectively.

Resumes (1-page) and short statements of interest (1 page) should be sent here. Do not email me directly, since I won’t be handling the hiring process. My team will begin reviewing applications by Sunday 4th May at the latest, though later submission will be considered. Applicants will be contacted by mid-May if we are interested in speaking.

  1. there is no salary. welcome to the blattman sweatshop. how ironic that sweatshop studies are done by unpaid students.

  2. Dudes, free flights, accom and living expenses for an American IVY league graduate does not equal sweatshop conditions

  3. I am mexican and I am really interested on the project. Are you looking just for american students?

  4. Hello,
    I applied for this internship three days ago and I was wondering if my email went through. I was not sure about the email address.
    Thank you for your attention,

  5. I was wondering if this internship is still valid for the summer of 2016? (if it’s annual internship).

  6. I was looking for summer internships in 2017 in Addis Ababa for two months, July and August. Is there this possibility?
