We’re Looking for the Next Mollie Beattie Intern

There’s an exciting opportunity at VNRC for a 2021 Mollie Beattie Intern. Named in the honor of the late Mollie Beattie, Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from 1991-1996 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. In particular, the intern will assist with dam removal projects, the investigation of tools to measure land use change in Vermont, and policies related to maintaining water quality in Vermont.

The scope of work will be matched with the intern’s experience and interests. Backgrounds in environmental engineering, conservation biology, hydrology, GIS/spatial analysis, or water resource management/policy desired, but not mandatory.  

Compensation: Paid up to $4,700 for approximately 8-10 weeks of work

How to apply

Send a resume and letter of interest by Wednesday, July 21 to aconnizzo@vnrc.org, addressed to the Mollie Beattie Internship Committee.
