Energy Innovation Reform Project seeks 1-2 energy policy research interns to assist with ongoing policy-oriented projects focused on energy (especially the power sector) and climate change, both domestically and internationally. Interns will primarily support EIRP president Paul Saunders; duties will include research, analysis and writing as well as monitoring and (where appropriate) summarizing important news or other federal policy developments related to nuclear power, carbon capture and storage, and renewable energy.
Ongoing projects include programs and reports assessing U.S. energy technology cooperation and competition with allies and rivals as well as state-level research on energy and electricity markets, land use, and renewable power. EIRP is also working to support a bipartisan compromise policy on energy and climate change for the U.S. power sector.
Prospective candidates should have a demonstrable interest and some relevant experience in energy and climate policy. A good grasp of practical policy considerations is helpful, as are strong written and oral communications skills. Backgrounds in economics, public policy, and/or relevant engineering disciplines is also desirable.
Energy Innovation Reform Project is a non-profit non-partisan research and advocacy organization seeking to promote advanced energy technologies and practices that improve the affordability, reliability, safety and security of America’s energy supplies and energy economy.
