Apply on a rolling basis to a series of openings for interns in 2018 and beyond. The positions will focus on developing collaborations in sustainability research.

Future Earth’s hub in Paris is offering a series of three- to six-month internships for Master’s level students in France. These positions, which will run in 2018 and beyond, are an excellent opportunity to learn about the interactions between international sustainability science and society. Interns will assist Future Earth in developing several Knowledge-Action Networks, research collaborations that bring together scientists and leaders in policy, business, civil society and more.

To learn more about these internship opportunities and how to apply, see the full announcement here.

Selected interns will focus on Knowledge-Action Networks addressing key issues around the Food-Water-Energy Nexus, Natural Assets, Risks or the Ocean. Work areas might include coordinating with researchers and stakeholders, conducting literature research on related topics, preparing documentation and organising events and workshops.

Interns will also help to develop and update communication tools, such as the Open Network powered by Future Earth. This online platform links researchers and societal partners around global sustainability science. Other possible responsibilities include organising events and workshops for the Paris Hub as well as the global Secretariat.

Candidates should have strong computer literacy, good knowledge of sustainability and environmental challenges and must qualify for a “Convention de Stage” in France. Interns will receive a stipend of 540 Euros per month.
