The Consortium for Ocean Leadership is pleased to hire an intern for September 2021-September 2022. COL staff are hoping to return to in-office work this fall, and we will be considering interns interested in either remote or in-person work (or a hybrid version). Given the ongoing situation around COVID-19, some of the responsibilities may shift to ensure the safety and security of the intern.
The policy internship is designed to further professional development for current or recently graduated students through work with COL’s Public Affairs team. The intern learns about the federal legislative process and becomes more familiar with current science and ocean policy issues. They are responsible for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting on relevant bills and legislative hearings; contributing to the policy section of the weekly newsletter; developing information for congressional members and committees; attending hearings and briefings on behalf of COL; maintaining sections of our website; and pursuing other items on COL’s policy agenda. The intern may also have the opportunity to work on projects with other departments and on a variety of ocean and education initiatives.
The full-time intern will be regularly scheduled for 40 hours a week, paid an hourly rate of $15.20 and will be eligible for the following benefits: medical, dental, and vision insurance; holiday pay; accrued sick leave; and a commuting subsidy.
Internships will run for approximately one year, starting in August/September (specific start and end dates are flexible). The deadline for applications is July 30. Individuals who gain interest after the application deadline should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about availability.
We encourage those with a strong passion for all aspects of ocean science, policy, research, and/or technology to apply. We know that each applicant will bring unique skills, knowledge, experiences, and background to this position, and we welcome diverse experiences and perspectives.
Interested applicants should provide a writing sample (less than three pages long), a cover letter, a C.V. or resume, and a letter of recommendation from a community college or university representative or faculty member. Recommendation letters may be sent directly from the reference. Incomplete application packages will not be considered.
