Description: Enrolled students from the US and Canada are invited to apply for a position as a Transatlantic Intern at Ecologic Institute. Each year, Ecologic Institute brings young people interested in environmental policy to its headquarters in Berlin to be part of its international environmental research and consulting program.

Interns are integrated into Ecologic’s policy research and office routines, providing them real-world experience in an academic environment. The intern’s work will depend on his or her particular interests, skills, and experience as well as on current projects at Ecologic Institute. Interns also have the opportunity to participate in events and conferences hosted by various organizations in Berlin’s transatlantic community, enabling them to gain a broader understanding of important policy issues.

Applicants should generally have at least a bachelor’s degree. Students may wish to pursue an internship at Ecologic Institute in tandem with a graduate degree program (in public policy, international relations, environmental studies, law or other relevant disciplines). Start and end dates are flexible; generally, internships last six to twelve months. Interns wishing to improve their German language skills are encouraged to take time from their full-time schedule at Ecologic Institute to pursue language classes.
