Data Research Assistant Internship is available at the Urban Crime Labs, University of Chicago. The unprecedented growth in the global urban population creates incredible opportunities. However, it also intensifies the most difficult problems cities face, such as concentrated poverty, crime, poor-quality schooling, and pollution. The University of Chicago founded Urban Labs to help address these challenges. Urban Labs is a set of highly synergistic labs focused on undertaking an inquiry and having an impact on five essential dimensions of urban life: crime, education, health, poverty, as well as energy & environment. Moreover, urban Labs partners with cities to identify and rigorously evaluate the policies and programs with the greatest potential to improve human lives at scale.
