None at this time.

At AidData you will join world class development professionals in solving challenging development questions, working together with colleagues from diverse disciplines including economics, computer science, geography, public health, environmental studies and political science.

AidData is a learning organization, so in addition to helping your colleagues get smarter, you will gain first-hand experience in cutting-edge approaches to data and development. As a member of the research and innovation lab you will be exposed to randomized control trials, customized coding systems, spatial impact evaluations, elite surveys, and policy uptake initiatives.

We prioritize impact and collaboration, and you will be empowered with the tools, training, and flexibility you need to pursue projects that will allow you to leverage your strengths and interests. And whether on a walking meeting to discuss a next-gen field experiment with the World Bank or the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, or debating your annual March Madness bracket over lunch on the porch by the magnolia tree, your colleagues will be an invaluable source of ideas, learning, and fun.

Williamsburg and the surrounding areas offer a tremendous quality of life. Staff enjoy short commutes (for some of the team, less than 5 minutes!); extensive rivers, woods, and trails for outdoor recreation; and great colleagues who after work play on a community volleyball team, host trivia nights at local craft breweries, and organize book clubs and restaurant explorations.

As an employee of the College of William & Mary, you will be afforded competitive compensation and benefits, including comprehensive health, dental, and life insurance, retirement, and gym access. You will also receive an annual tuition reimbursement of more than $5,000, allowing AidData employees to take up to 4 William & Mary classes each calendar year free of charge.

In addition to updating skills through coursework, professional development is encouraged and facilitated through interaction with policymakers and established academics, development field work with local partners, and one-on-one mentoring with senior members of AidData.
