CABI Data Policy & Practice Internship

CABI (Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences International) is an international not-for-profit organization that improves people’s lives by providing information and applying scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment. We bring science-based agricultural knowledge to millions of smallholder farmers helping to increase their yields and adopt data-driven approaches to support informed decision making.

YCABI is looking for a curious and enthusiastic individual with hands-on experience working with data during their PhD/DPhil, who is interested in addressing problems related to data governance, data management and learning more about the non-technical aspects of maximising value gained from data.

The intern would support a growing portfolio of data policy and practice projects related to our expertise outlined in the section above. As a Data Policy and Practice Intern you will be welcomed into a highly collaborative team where your questions and ideas will be embraced and valued. Specific tasks/activities relating to the role will depend on project needs at the time the intern joins the team. However, we will aim to co-create the internship experience with the intern as much as possible.

The internship is most suitable for a student who has worked with data and analytics during their PhD, has an interest in expanding their data experience across the data skills framework (https://theodi.org/article/dataskillsframework/), and who has as interest in international development, agriculture, the environment, and/or health.

To apply, please see the advertisement on CABI iRecruit https://cabi.ciphr-irecruit.com/templates/CIPHR/jobdetail_3578.aspx

Please contact Dr Tom Chaloner (t.chaloner@cabi.org) if you have any questions or would like to discuss further.
