The Fellowship 

Our Summer Fellowship will run from June to August. Fellows will be given a chance to work directly with practitioners on meaningful work, while also being guided and supported by your individual manager. This will be a hands-on opportunity, where fellows will learn by doing. 

 

What you’ll do: 

 

The fellowship will look different depending on the department to which you are assigned. A few examples of some tasks you could take on are: 

 

  • Cleaning, combining, and managing multiple sources of data in an organized manner

  • Training and evaluating data in statistical methods and/or using machine learners

  • Writing algorithms in python and SQL

  • Engaging in project brainstorming, research on edge-cutting techs and/or NLP algorithms

  • Building base cross tabs for our surveys and models

  • Helping build Tableau reports

  • Helping build decks: building some visualizations, contributing insights, QCing numbers, text, and formatting

  • Uploading data from surveys: taking the data that we receive from vendors, ensuring that it is in the right format to upload, uploading using the BL survey tools, and QCing

You are:

  • Passionate about using data to solve problems 

  • Self motivated 

  • Function well in high-stress environments 

 

The fellowship is a temporary program and fellows are given a $2,500 per month stipend for full-time fellows. Part time stipends will be adjusted based on hours. 

 

At BlueLabs, we celebrate, support and thrive on differences. Not only do they benefit our services, products, and community, but most importantly, they are to the benefit of our team.
