Spring 2018 Research and Publications Intern

For four decades, the Environmental Law Institute (ELI) has played a pivotal role in shaping the fields of environmental law, policy, and management, both domestically and internationally. For more information on the Institute, visit www.eli.org.

ELI seeks individuals to support the research and publications departments of the Institute. Interns work directly with staff attorneys, editors, scientists, and economists on a variety of projects. Substantive areas of focus include: land use policy, public participation in environmental regulation, biodiversity, air quality, public health, hazardous waste and brownfields, wetlands and watershed policy, international environmental policy, armed conflict and the environment, environmental management systems, and environmental enforcement.

Interns conduct library and internet research, attend and report on outside events, analyze, edit, and synthesize scholarly material, assist with preparation for environmental training courses, and perform various administrative tasks. ELI integrates interns into the day-to-day operations of the Institute, and interns are encouraged to attend ELI policy events and meetings.

Positions are available for a minimum of 16 hours/week during the academic semesters (and full time positions are available during the summer). Candidates should possess superior research, writing, and interpersonal communication skills, as well as a strong desire to gain knowledge of the environmental field. A strong academic background is required, but specific environmental experience is not mandatory. Candidates must have completed their freshman year of college. Compensation is not available, but a transportation stipend is provided.

Applications for the internship are being accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until October 15, 2017, at 11:59 pm. To apply, send a cover letter explaining interest and availability, resume (including overall GPA), and 3-5 page analytical writing sample to:
