Interns are paid a stipend of $550 per week. Interns are expected to work a full-time schedule for 11-12 weeks. Start and end dates can be flexible based on individual needs. Housing options are available in our Basalt location. Funding As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, ensuring we are using our resources thoughtfully is a top priority. We encourage all students to contact their school to inquire about potential internship funding to match or supplement the RMI/CWR stipend. Students will not be screened on the basis of receiving funding. We are seeking full-time interns to fill summer internship opportunities for 3 months. These positions will focus on projects relating to the electricity system, building efficiency, international energy, and transportation. Successful candidates will be assigned projects within the broader initiatives, which include but are not limited to: research and coalition-building that addresses pragmatic designs, practices, and policies, not social theories or laboratory experiments. We work on all parts of the solution process—idea, strategy, and implementation—in the high impact areas of energy, mobility and vehicle efficiency, energy resource use, security, and the built environment. Interns are expected to learn about all parts of the solution process and actively work on key areas identified by project managers. Qualifications Applicants should be pursuing a Master's Degree in a related field and have basic knowledge of one or more of the team's’ focus areas—energy efficiency; renewable energy; demand-side management; building science and energy modeling; efficient and low carbon light duty cars and truck design; and transportation logistics. Where applicable, the applicant should be comfortable working with, or reporting on, numerical analysis and spreadsheet modeling, research and reporting. In addition to skills and expertise, we value and seek the following qualities in our candidate: intense curiosity, self-motivated and able to work independently, willingness to plunge into unfamiliar disciplines, creativity and willingness to take risks by exploring and testing new ideas, and a passion for making the world better.
