The Tufts Office of Sustainability is seeking a student to do research and write memos on various sustainability topics. This will be almost 100% computer work, involving researching a specific topic and writing a concise memo that includes a summary section with recommendations. A guide on the memo style will be provided.

Sustainability memos are designed to inform decision-making, determine best practice around given topics, and/or do benchmarking research. Example memo topics include: How nine colleges achieved carbon neutrality, how to implement sustainability into the academic curriculum, other institutions’ sustainable procurement policies, or a comparison of local composting companies comparing prices/pros/cons.   

Occasionally, the intern may be called on to support office programs such as the carbon neutrality planning process, employee Eco-Ambassadors, the Green Office Certification program, and support other sustainability initiatives at the university. 

Application Deadline: August 23, 2020
