Global Warming Campus Internship
Make a difference on global warming and clean energy this fall.
Work from campus, 4-7 hours/week.
Global warming is happening and we’re seeing the effects all around us — from dangerous heat waves and droughts to last winter’s snowstorms. And scientists warn it could get much worse unless we act soon.
The good news: we have the solutions. Solar power is taking off, and we’re beginning to harvest energy from the winds off our shores.
But powerful interests, including utility companies and the fossil fuel industry, are threatening to stop clean energy in its tracks.
We’re looking for smart, hard-working students to build the people power it will take to repower Massachusetts with clean energy. Interns will work 4-7 hours per week from campus.
Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) seeks qualified candidates for an intern position for its DesignLights
Consortium® (DLC) project either for the semester, or full-time. Interns will work with the DLC team, reporting to the
DLC Program Manager. This job is based in Lexington, MA. Reliable transportation is helpful. Public transport is limited,
but available. Some field travel is also possible.
DLC is the industry’s resource for information and cutting edge technical expertise on energy efficient commercial solid
state lighting solutions. The DLC Qualified Products List (QPL) is NEEP’s largest initiative, serving as a key resource for
energy efficiency incentive programs throughout the US and Canada by distinguishing high performing and energy
saving lighting products from the rest. DLC engages its members (utilities and other energy efficiency programs) with
government agencies, lighting experts, lighting product manufacturers, and lighting testing labs to establish technical
requirements that manufacturers must meet to list their products on the QPL.
The Public Lands Transportation Scholar program provides fellowships to outstanding graduates in a transportation-related field to spend ten months working directly with staff of Federal Land Management Agencies on key visitor transportation issues.
We are currently seeking applications for scholars at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Pennsylvania and Kauai National Wildlife Refuge in Hawaii.
More detailed position description informations for each location can be found below:
