Apply for a 2020 data journalism fellowship focused on women’s and LGBTIQ rights

openDemocracy’s Tracking the Backlash project is excited to announce a six-month, full-time data journalism fellowship starting in March 2020. Working closely with our editors, the fellow will focus on applying data journalism and other investigative reporting techniques to special projects tracking organised opposition to women’s and LGBTIQ rights across the world.

The fellow will be paid a stipend of $2,100 per month and will be expected to dedicate 40 hours a week to related research, reporting, data entry, data analysis and other tasks for at least two major investigative projects. Throughout the fellowship, they will receive ongoing mentorship and supervision on data and investigative skills and will be invited to attend special training workshops.

We’re looking for applications from journalists who want to gain experience working with data in investigations – or from researchers with experience in data entry and analysis who want to gain experience in journalism. Data journalism is a specialised skill and you will get more out of this opportunity if you have some experience in storytelling or research. Previous work experience of 3-5 years is therefore preferred, but we will consider applications in their entirety.

The fellow can be based anywhere in the world with reliable internet access though we particularly encourage applications from women and LGBTIQ people living in East Africa as well as Central Asia, Eastern Europe, and the South Caucasus, which are regions where Tracking the Backlash is expanding.
