Summer 2021 Climate Change Internship Opportunity
The Center for Houston’s Future, a non-profit located in Houston, is looking for interns for the Summer of 2021 who would like to work on a virtual internship project on climate change by helping the Center with its pioneering work on making Houston a leader in the energy transition.
At the Center, we look at the implications of long-term global and national trends on the economy of the Houston region and, in doing so, work closely with government leaders, community stakeholders and the business community.
Last summer, the Center, and a team of faculty members and interns from the University of Houston, developed a pioneering study on Houston’s role as a low carbon energy hub, Houston: The Low Carbon Energy Capital, Four Ways Forward. https://www.centerforhoustonsfuture.org/energy. That work identified four areas, carbon capture, hydrogen, low carbon grid technologies and plastics recycling, where the Houston region has the assets, skills and knowledge to lead in developing solutions to decarbonize the globe.
This summer’s team, consisting of interns with multi-disciplinary skills from several universities, will build on that work to begin to develop plans to implement early-stage pilots and to create roadmaps for later stage opportunities.
This project is an opportunity to learn more about solutions to climate change and how these solutions will shape the future of the energy industry and Houston’s economy.
This internship will require between 25-30 hours a week for a period 7-8 weeks. A stipend or course credit is available if requested.
Please send an email with a resume to the Center’s CEO, Brett Perlman, email@example.com, no later than May 15th. Questions? Call 281 686-1030.
