Description

The Huck Institute of Life Science is looking for an undergraduate who is studying biology (or related field), writing, and creative design. Applicant will assist the Data and Visualization group with creating articles for “outside-the-university” consumption that will incorporate graphs and visualizations. These are similar to those found at the New York Times Interactive or Washington Post Data Visualizations. Students will be tasked with working with the Data and Visualization team to find a research project at Huck that would be appropriate for such a format; help with collaborating with the professor/faculty member/PI to capture the overall message of the research and helping to distill it down to print for a more general audience; and designing (not necessarily coding) the graphs/visualizations to embed in the article. The focus of the position will be on creativity, writing ability, and coordinating with faculty at Huck. No coding background is required.
