The Joint Program accepts interns on a rolling basis to help with their communications efforts. This candidate would aid the program in communicating and promoting its research effectively. This work would include preparing daily media monitoring reports for distribution to staff and researchers, updating the program’s website and social media accounts, assisting in event planning, and writing summaries of research reports for use as news stories and for the program’s quarterly newsletter.
All candidates must be creative thinkers with strong written and verbal communications skills. Ideal candidates would have a strong interest in the fields of communications and/or journalism and a passion for environment and/or energy issues. This would be an excellent opportunity for someone interested in exploring these fields – especially the communications/public relations field –and gaining professional experience while in school.
This is an unpaid opportunity, but could possibly be arranged for credit. Hours are flexible, as is the possibility to work virtually.
