During the internship, the student will have the opportunity to work with different research projects and with various researchers and to participate in seminars and other events organized by the QoG Institute as well as the Department of Political Science.

Apply for our QoG Data Internship Fall 2022
During Fall semester 2022, the Quality of Government Data section will host an internship designed for students enrolled in a master´s program who would like to have hands-on application of data management in Stata and would like to learn how to use R while dealing with topics related to Quality of Government.
In this internship, the student will have two main roles: first, they will be a direct contributor to our work by performing data wrangling tasks and learning how the QoG data operation works, and second, they will be learning R and how this tool can be helpful to summarize and present data.
The student who joins this internship will be working together with our data team and will also be part of the wider QoG network and the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg. Additionally, the student will have the opportunity to participate in seminars and other events organized at the Department of Political Science. The internship provides relevant experience particularly for students interested in the intersection of data and political science.
The main tasks of the internship are:
- Participate with data wrangling using Stata
- Create summary information and short analysis for publication in our social media channels
- Create reports in R using RMarkdown
- Create Shiny dashboards (if a 20-week internship or previous proficiency in R)
We accept students currently enrolled in a master’s program. We are looking for highly motivated, self-driven interns who are interested in Quality of Government as a research area with some knowledge of Stata. Given that this internship is aimed also at helping students get experience in using R, experience or knowledge of this program is not a requirement but willingness to learn and work with us is. Our working language is English. The internship is unpaid but students will receive academic credits.
