Data Fellows Programme

The Centre for Humanitarian Data is seeking numerous Fellows to be part of their two-month data fellows programme this summer.

The Centre focuses on four areas: data services, data policy, data literacy, and network engagement. The Centre’s data services work includes direct management of the Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) platform and the Humanitarian Exchange Language (HXL) data standard. The data literacy work focuses on improving the data skills of technical and non-technical humanitarians. For data policy, the Centre creates guidelines for the responsible use of data by OCHA staff and partners. Finally, the Centre works to further build and engage an active community in support of its mission and objectives through a number of events and communication activities.

There are four different fellowships open to applications:

  • Business Strategy Fellowship
  • Data Science (Education) Fellowship
  • Predictive Analytics Fellowship
  • Statistics (Disability) Fellowship
