Performance Measurement and Evaluation Fellow

Apply by April 1. Eligibility and application information is available here.

The Performance Measurement and Evaluation Fellowship provides an opportunity for candidates with strong quantitative skills to apply their knowledge and passion to help advance the arts and humanities programming at Dumbarton Oaks. The fellow will play a key role in fostering a culture of evaluation and data-gathering across the institution by collecting, analyzing, and presenting metrics about all aspects of our public engagement to help us track development and impact over time. The fellow will also research, develop, and build upon existing evaluation toolkits for our scholarly programming and formulate ways of collecting input from visitors to the museum, garden, and scholarly events. The fellowship provides career development opportunities in fields such as data collection and analysis, museum programming, and audience evaluation and reporting.

Candidates should possess:

  • Demonstrated interest in the humanities, e.g., through a minor or joint degree, or through robust extracurricular involvement in the arts and humanities
  • Ability to integrate quantitative and qualitative results to form a cohesive and comprehensive evaluation of programs
  • Strong communication skills with emphasis on data management and analytical capabilities.
  • Strong research skills coupled with equally strong analytical skills
  • Experience and facility with statistical software (e.g., STATA) preferred
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
  • Some project management experience an advantage, but training and mentorship will be provided
