Global Centre on Healthcare and Urbanisation (Kellogg College & the University of Oxford) - Research Analyst: Preventable Deaths In Cities In England And Wales (MIP) 

Understanding the causes of deaths, and how they can be prevented is critical for improving how we live. At the national level, over-reporting or under-reporting of deaths can profoundly affect policy decisions, which in turn alter global economies, and the day-to-day lives of citizens.

This pioneering research aims to harness lessons from premature deaths to reduce avoidable harms, serve patient and public safety, and to educate the public, clinicians, and policymakers. You will work closely with Dr Georgia Richards, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at GCHU, and choose a city (e.g. Oxford) to focus your analysis. Your findings will contribute to a Report on “Preventable Deaths in Cities in England and Wales”. 

This innovative research will make use of coroners’ Prevention of Future Deaths reports (PFDs), by synthesising and analysing data on a city of your choice. We have used PFDs to create the Preventable Deaths Tracker and are conducting research on preventable opioid-related deaths, deaths involving cardiovascular disease and anticoagulantssuicidesSARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), and deaths involving medicines and misused drugs. In addition to analysing data and producing a report, you will have the opportunity to publish your work as a blog, or as part of a journal publication.

Good Data Institute - International Charity Micro-Internship (MIP) 

The NFP sector faces a raft of challenges in the 21st century. These include funding pressures, talent retention and digital disruption. The sector has grown significantly in the last 20 years but there is a concentration of funding and assets in the top 10% of organisations. This has led to a ‘long tail’ of charities that lack the skills, resources and structure to create concrete results. 

The Good Data Institute (GDI) is Australia’s first dedicated organisation to give not-for-profits access to pro bono data analytics support and tools, via a network of socially minded data analytics volunteers. The launch of this organisation was driven by the realization that the same data and analytics processes that the private sector is using to compete in the marketplace, can also be leveraged by mission-driven organisations to accomplish their goals and enact change. 

We have established more than 25 NFP partnerships including with Opportunity International, Kua, Zukuka Bora Coffee, Youth off the Streets, 180 Degrees Consulting, the Hunger Project Australia, the Unspoken Smiles Foundation, ROHO, Rape Prevention Education, Inclusive America and Junior Achievement Australia. We are supporting these organisations to understand issues or needs more deeply, to improve operational effectiveness (i.e. in support functions such as fundraising) or to visualise and quantify results and impact. 

In addition to these partnerships, we have on-boarded more than 100 data analytics volunteers who are contributing to these projects and strengthening our organisation’s community. We have also secured preliminary funding from the Global Changemakers organisation. Ultimately, the growth of this social enterprise is enabling improved capacity building for the NFP sector in Australia and abroad. 

Our goal is to become the number 1 pro-bono data analytics partner for the Not For Profit world, however, the Good Data Institute is currently at a crossroads. Growth of the initiative is not possible without now devoting a greater volume of hours into the initiative and engaging with volunteers such as yourself, to chart a path forward. Consequently, we are taking on 3 Oxford University student interns. We would like to invite you to be involved with GDI for a week. 

We’d love to have you onboard to consider marketing, sponsorship and community-building strategy, growth plans and to help solve challenges for the organisation moving forward.

Mashpi Reserve / Mashpi Lodge - Long-term Ecological Monitoring at Mashpi Reserve Micro-Internship (MIP) 

The Research and Biology Department at the Mashpi Reserve is offering the opportunity to engage in a project involving long-term ecological monitoring. 

Among the future objectives of the R&B Dept., we have identified the need to have a long-term monitoring network. Several indicators have already been assessed (amphibians, reptiles, birds, water quality, C storage and sequestration), but the frequency has been variable. As well, similar data for the whole ecoregion is very scarce or non-existent.  

The aim of this project is to assess all existing data from past monitoring/studies in the reserve, and then propose a set of indicators to continue monitoring in the years to come (methodology for each indicator must also be proposed). The indicators must be feasible to assess within the R&B Dept. existing resources and capacities. If not, a national or international. organization must be identified/proposed in order to create alliances. Indicators as well must be proposed after a revision of scientific literature from other long-term monitoring experiences worldwide (ex. NEON (USA)).
