Vermont Natural Resources Council
2022 Mollie Beattie Intern | Paid Internship
Location: 11 Baldwin Street
There’s an exciting opportunity at VNRC for a 2022 Mollie Beattie Intern. Named in honor of the late Mollie Beattie, who served as Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from 1991 to 1996 following years of environmental service in Vermont, this opportunity is open to a graduate level student—or a recent graduate with a natural resources or law degree—who intends to pursue a career in environmental science or natural resources policy or law.
The intern will help coordinate initiatives related to water quality, land use planning, sustainable community development, and forest and wildlife conservation. The scope of work will be matched with the intern’s experience and interests.
VNRC is an Equal Opportunity Employer and strongly encourages applications from candidates whose identities have been historically underrepresented in the environmental movement, including people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Hispanic or Latino, Asian or Pacific Islander, or people of color; people from marginalized economic backgrounds; and people living with disabilities.
While we anticipate that the work of the Mollie Beattie Internship will be performed largely remotely, we leave open the possibility for in-person work if the selected candidate and conditions allow. Please indicate your availability for such work in your letter of interest. All offers for employment are conditioned on the candidate complying with VNRC’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy.
Compensation: Paid up to $5,020 for approximately 8-10 weeks of work
