Summer 2018 Research and Publications Intern

For almost five 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 on a variety of projects. Substantive areas of focus include: air and water quality, climate change, renewable energy, hazardous waste and brownfields, international environmental policy, sustainable land use, biodiversity conservation, wetlands management, freshwater and ocean policy, environmental health, environmental enforcement, and mining law.

Interns conduct 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.

Full-time positions are available for the summer (and positions are also available for a minimum of 15 hours/week during the academic year). 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 summer internship will be accepted until 11:59 pm Monday, February 19, 2018 on a rolling basis. To apply, send a cover letter explaining interest and availability, resume (including overall GPA), and 3-5 page analytical writing sample to:
