Internship- Paid
Fall Internship 2018 Organization   Ceres is a sustainability nonprofit organization working with the most influential investors and companies to build leadership and drive solutions throughout the economy. Through our powerful networks and advocacy, we tackle the world’s biggest sustainability challenges, including climate change, water scarcity and pollution, and human rights abuses.   For more information about Ceres, please visit our web site ( www.ceres.org ).   We are seeking dynamic, committed interns who would find it exciting to join the Ceres team!   General Internship Information   Ceres’ interns support Program, Communications, and Development staff working with a wide variety of constituents within the Ceres network: environmental activists, investors, funders, and corporations. While providing some administrative support, interns will primarily work in one of the following areas using skills in research, project coordination, IT and communications.  Detailed descriptions of each available position can be found below.     Each fall internship position requires 10 to 15 hours of work per week.  Schedules can be flexible to fit with class and/or work schedules.  Ceres compensates interns at a rate of $13.50 hour.  Our Fall Internship Program runs from September 2018 through mid-December 2018.     Please read details of each position on our website and apply for the specific internship you are interested in. We typically hire 8-10 interns, who are a mix of undergraduate and graduate students. Please note: Only the Program Teams listed on the website are seeking an intern for Fall 2018. If any of these internships listed below are not currently on our website, we are no longer accepting applications for that position.    TRANSPORTATION INTERN   This intern will work with both the Director of Transportation and the Senior Manager of Clean Vehicles at Ceres.   A clean and efficient transportation system is critical to a strong economy; its benefits include saving consumers and businesses money as well as reducing our dependence on oil. Transportation is also a significant contributor to carbon emissions. In fact, in 2016, the transportation sector surpassed the electric power sector as the largest emitter of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the United States, accounting for 28% of GHG emissions – more emissions than any other nation's entire economy, with the exception of China.   To adequately reduce emissions associated with the transportation sector, we need to focus on three components: vehicles, fuels and infrastructure. In the next year, Ceres’ Transportation Program's primary focus will be on promoting clean fuels, vehicles and relevant policies, and increasing corporate uptake and deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) and EV charging stations. Fall 2018 projects will include advocating for Low Carbon Fuel Standards, supporting passenger vehicles and truck fuel economy standards, and promoting advanced technology vehicles. In addition, this position will assist in preparing materials for and engaging companies on the business case for EVs with the goal of securing large-scale corporate electrification commitments. This intern will be asked to perform research on various transportation issues, draft educational materials and perform some administrative tasks.

The Electric Power Team is seeking an intern for the Fall 2018 period to assist the team in providing research and fact-checking to help develop and prioritize our targets for corporate engagement.   The intern will also assist with the development of materials to support corporate engagement on renewable energy and energy efficiency including presentations, fact sheets and other advocacy materials. These materials will help us make the business case to companies for adoption of renewables and efficiency as well as the case to investors on the importance of engaging with companies on these issues.  We are seeking an undergraduate or graduate student with interest, experience, knowledge and desire to work in the clean energy field and who has excellent communications, research, writing, Excel and database skills.   WATER INTERN   Ceres is working with companies, investors, water providers, policymakers, environmental organizations and other stakeholders to improve water management and increase reporting on water issues that pose risks to businesses, communities and the environment.   The Water Program is seeking a graduate student this fall to help us advance our work on analyzing and addressing water risks related to two pillars: the food and beverage sector and the investment community.
