SPEC has developed the Community Innovation Technology Internship for a Sustainable and Equitable Nation (CITISEN) program to provide opportunities for individuals to learn skills, build careers, and impact communities. SPEC is seeking CITISEN research associates (RAs), or simply CITISENs, to expand our research efforts and community-building initiatives. Through the program, CITISENs learn to identify data sources and collect accurate information, use technology to engage communities across the world, and present their findings in an open and accessible manner. The CITISEN program offers personalized mentoring, career training, and professional development opportunities. CITISENs participate in regular virtual team meetings and learn to collaborate in a highly distributed, technologically enhanced, and culturally diverse work environment.
