Closing Date: Nov 23, 2017 or until filled

Position:

The Data Visualization and Infographic Design Intern will be responsible for designing creative and compelling visualizations and infographics of public health data for public dissemination. The work will primarily be in support of the Ending the Epidemic Dashboard project (www.etedashboardny.org), a web-based, public facing tool to broadly disseminate information related to the Ending the AIDS Epidemic initiative in New York State.

The ideal candidate will be someone with experience in print and web design and basic familiarity of visualization tools and methods. Most importantly, the candidate will have a passion for visual design with the ability to comprehend and convey complex and technical information to non-technical audiences through effective design.

Organization:

The CUNY Institute for Implementation Science in Population Health’s mission is to translate research into sustainable, cost-effective population-level interventions, strategies, initiatives, and policies with the potential to improve health and reduce health disparities at scale around the world. We do this by understanding biological mechanisms, subtypes and major drivers of disease, identifying program/service/policy implementation gaps driving suboptimal health outcomes at the population level, and by designing and conducting rigorous experimental and observational studies of the impact of strategies aimed at improving population health outcomes. We rigorously assess the effectiveness of these strategies when implemented at scale. Given that many forces shape population health, including those outside the health sector (e.g., political, economic, sociologic, environmental, demographic), we seek and generate knowledge, collaboration and expertise to achieve our mission of improved population health through better implementation.

Key Responsibilities:

 Design creative and aesthetically sound infographics to communicate key trends, outcomes, and messages from various data sources

 Create functional wireframes and mock-ups to bolster web development and interactive visualizations

 Develop layouts for static materials like PPT presentations, PDFs and other non-digital materials

Bachelor’s degree in technical discipline or equivalent experience

Must be able to provide samples of work demonstrating proficiency of graphic design and/or data visualization
