https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/depts/cdph.html

Description

The position would be working among the Epidemiology Unit of the Bureau of Disease Control of CDPH, one of our most advanced teams. In the past year, we’ve responded to events like the Mpox epidemic and the Ugandan Ebola outbreak, done some great work analyzing and correcting for COVID inequities, and made big strides on much-needed data modernization, to name a few of our efforts. One of our latest projects is the development of an automated cluster detection + disease surveillance system, which will use advanced algorithms to scan for aberrant outbreaks across a wide range of diseases and collate near-real-time data into auto-generated reports and visualizations to be used by epidemiologists and medical directors. The GIS Analyst position supports all of these efforts, and has ample opportunity to design and lead their own advanced spatial analyses or other projects to help modernize the field and further equitable health outcomes across all of Chicago. It’s a position that allows for a surprising amount of ambition and skill (everything from planning to programming to analysis to design), and would get to work with a team focused on innovation and revolutionizing urban public health systems, while also directly advancing public good. This is a great opportunity for any new grads interested in a career in planning, urban informatics, and spatial analysis and who wish to gain experience working for a major American city.

Job Description
The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) is seeking to hire five (5) interns in the Regional Policy and Implementation (RPI) Division. The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) is our region’s comprehensive planning organization. The agency and its partners are implementing ON TO 2050, a long-range plan to help the seven counties and 284 communities of northeastern Illinois implement strategies that address transportation, housing, economic development, open space, the environment, and other quality-of-life issues. See cmap.illinois.gov/about for more information on the agency’s vision and core values.

The interns will support CMAP’s ON TO 2050 plan implementation work, which carries out regional planning projects, policy research and analysis, and collaboration among stakeholders. These efforts are focused on three critical areas: climate mitigation and resilience, ensuring a safe and equitable transportation system, and growing an economy that works for everyone.

Applicants should indicate which focus area(s) they would like to work on.

  • Climate. Supports climate mitigation and resilience projects by performing research and writing about assigned topics, conducting geographic information system (GIS) analysis, and participating in regional engagement efforts.

  • Transportation safety. Supports CMAP’s Safe Travel for All Roadmap (STAR) by assisting staff with policy development, ongoing engagement efforts, safety and mobility planning projects as well as conducting research and data analysis. Project work is likely to cover topics like developing a regional framework for safety planning that focuses on historically disadvantaged areas and vulnerable roadway users, implementing speed management strategies through design guidance, legislation and engagement and local planning projects to address safety issues with a comprehensive approach.
