Join Our Team

Research Intern

The Reproductive Health Access Project (RHAP) is a small, but growing national nonprofit organization based in New York City. We are looking for a highly motivated, organized, and detail-orientated individual to join our research and evaluation team as a Research Intern. This is a unique opportunity to make a significant contribution to an exciting, mission-driven organization. The Research Intern is a part-time intern position reporting to the Research and Evaluation Manager. This position may be remote.

About the Reproductive Health Access Project:

The Reproductive Health Access Project mobilizes, trains, and supports clinicians to make reproductive health care accessible to everyone. We focus on three key areas:  abortion, contraception, and early pregnancy loss.

Our training programs give clinicians the skills they need to provide high-quality reproductive health care and model a non-judgmental, patient-centered approach to providing health care. Our leadership development and advocacy programs help create a new generation of reproductive health leaders who are effective advocates in their local communities. Our technical assistance and mentoring programs ensure that the reproductive health skills we teach are successfully integrated into clinical settings.

We believe that this combination of training, advocacy, and support can change the culture of primary care in our country and expand access to needed reproductive health care.



The Research Intern will play a key role in ensuring that the Reproductive Health Access Project meets its short and long-term research and evaluation goals. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, detail-oriented self-starter to support a variety of local and national initiatives. This position is also ideal for someone looking to complete a thesis or capstone project. The primary role of the Research Intern is to clean and analyze survey data regarding community health centers’ provision of early pregnancy loss (miscarriage) care, interpret findings, and draft a manuscript for peer-reviewed publication. This is a part-time (hours flexible) position.

Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

  • Clean, code, and analyze survey data.
  • Draft a manuscript for peer-reviewed publication.
  • Conduct literature reviews and annotated bibliographies on a variety of reproductive health, rights, and justice topics, as well as research methodologies.
  • Assist in monitoring and collecting data from programs.
  • Synthesize program monitoring data into easy-to-read and visually-appealing reports.

Education & Experience

  • Commitment to sexual and reproductive justice.
  • Ability to use quantitative data analysis software for basic statistical analysis (SPSS or R preferred).
  • Able to work comfortably both independently and as part of a team.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and willingness to work in a small, open office.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills.
  • Detail-oriented with excellent organizational abilities; especially ability to prioritize and meet deadlines.

  • High levels of initiative, dependability, flexibility, and humor.

This position can be remote. A small stipend that can be used for travel will be provided. Although a commitment of 10-15 hours a week is expected, the schedule is flexible.
