Earth Institute Internship and Research Assistantships

Undergraduate Research Assistants

Research assistantships provide opportunities for Columbia University undergraduate students to participate in real-world sustainable development research on a range of projects alongside Earth Institute faculty and researchers. These positions allow undergraduates to collaborate on substantive matters of inquiry, while gaining meaningful insight into various fields of study and the research process as a whole. Students participate in all phases of research under faculty guidance; with student help, these projects develop in a way that would not be possible without their assistance.

Projects vary from semester to semester, but generally focus on topics such as sustainability, development economics, earth sciences, ecology, atmospheric research and environmental policy, among others. 

Internships

Internships provide undergraduate, graduate and PhD students at Columbia and Barnard with an exciting opportunity to work at Earth Institute centers in a variety of administrative and communications positions.  Interns gain hands-on professional experience by working with leading members of the scientific community in these centers. Interns can expect to develop skills in project management, writing, editing, social media, event management and more.  Internships allow students to build their resume while adding value to their academic experience at Columbia University. Earth Institute centers benefit from meaningful contributions from bright and motivated students.

Interns have varied backgrounds and come from a wide range of departments including anthropology, environmental policy and electrical engineering, to name a few. 

Application Materials

Applicants will need to submit:

  • Resume detailing relevant work and education
  • Cover letter stating interests and qualifications for the specific position. Letters should be addressed to: David Morales-Miranda, Program Manager, Office of Academic and Research Programs.
