SITE NEWS: FO Seeks Interns for Injuries

Football Outsiders is seeking two interns (one for AFC teams, one for NFC teams) to help collect player injury data for the 2014 season.

The ideal candidates will:

  • Have experience with Excel (.xlsx files) and a comfort with maintaining large databases
  • Be able to meet deadlines, which won't be strict at all, but we don't want people falling behind
  • Have good knowledge of player roles (starters vs. subs vs. pure backups) and/or the research skills to determine them (Note: you will be provided with multiple research resources)
  • Not be afraid to seek help or ask questions (communication is vital)
  • Be available to work on this from September (Week 1) through the Super Bowl (February)

These positions are unpaid, but we are happy to fill out any forms you may require us to go over for college credit, and you'll get Football Outsiders Almanac 2015 and next year's KUBIAK projections for free.

If you're interested, please send an e-mail to smk_42@yahoo.com with a cover letter (keep it simple) and your resume.

UPDATE: We are no longer seeking applications. Thanks to everyone who applied. We'll keep your resumes on file for potential as future interns.

How exactly do you plan to injure these interns? Is this some sort of NFL concussion research?

Exactly my reaction to the headline.
