Full Text of JOE Listing:

The ACLU seeks applicants for a full-time fellowship position of one year in the Analytics Department of the ACLU’s National office. The individual in this role will join the Analytics Department of the ACLU National Office (either on-site in NYC or remote). The prospective start date will be in March 2021.

Reporting to the Director, Legal Analytics & Quantitative Research, the Redistricting Fellow will apply cutting-edge empirical methods from the social sciences to quantitative legal and research questions on redistricting and voting rights that inform the ACLU’s litigation, advocacy, and voter engagement work. This role will specialize in ensuring a fair and non-partisan redistricting process, working in close partnership with our Voting Rights Project, advocacy staff, and ACLU affiliates. This includes partnering with ACLU attorneys and organizers across a range of redistricting and voting rights issues to shape research questions, conduct analyses (ranging from descriptive analytics to simulation and outlier analyses), and translate the results of quantitative analyses for a non-technical audience.
