New American Economy (NAE) brings together more than 500 Republican, Democratic, and Independent mayors and business leaders united in making the case for streamlining, modernizing, and rationalizing our immigration system. We advocate for reform through a variety of digital and on-the-ground initiatives and through original research and policy reports. We engage our political leaders in Washington, D.C. and across the country and we unite the diverse sectors that support reform, including tech, agriculture, business, faith, law enforcement, and education, and others, in order to show that the need for reform is urgent and the case is strong.
NAE is seeking a New York City-based, full-time Data Science Analyst to support the NAE Research team’s work quantifying the economic impact of immigrants and U.S. immigration policies have in the United States, both nationally and locally. They will have the opportunity to conceive and carry out high-profile research projects, gathering unique datasets, data mining, data scraping, and using machine learning to deliver new and creative insights to immigration-related issues.
The ideal candidate holds master’s degree in data science, quantitative methods, economics, a related background. Candidates with a bachelor’s degree and relevant professional experience are also welcome to apply. Candidates should be looking to apply creative research approaches to public policy issues. Demonstrated writing skills showing the ability to synthesize complex findings into compelling and accessible terms and the ability to adapt quickly to current events and shifting research priorities is a definite advantage. Familiarity with more traditional statistical software platforms or geospatial analysis such as Stata or GIS is also a plus.
