Transport & Environment (T&E), the leading Brussels-based NGO promoting cleaner transport in Europe, is offering an internship for a period of six months, starting in early September 2020.
The successful candidate will be working with T&E's Trends and Analysis team, supporting T&E’s overall in-house quantitative analysis.
The successful candidate will ideally have some knowledge of transport modelling, large data management and visualisation, programming (ideally in Python), an interest in environmental conservation and an aptitude for developing policy recommendations that would lead to positive environmental outcomes. Good interpersonal skills are essential as is a good level of English (the working language). Candidates should be able to work autonomously and collaboratively.
Candidates with an engineering or economics background are strongly encouraged to apply, though anyone with relevant skills and interest will be considered.
As part of the internship, the successful candidate will undertake a specific research project with the exact scope of the project to be agreed at commencement. This project could also be used as part of a Master Thesis or PhD program, as all projects are highly relevant to European transport policy and will require novel insights and analysis. The project would be dependent on the skill set and experience of the person. Some examples of potential projects are:
In addition, the selected person would also help with other projects within the team to gain a more fulfilling experience in working in the organisation.
Applicants must include a short description of a preferred project(s) within their cover letter, including an outline scope, methodology and expected outcomes.
The position is full-time, with a contract running from early September to late February 2021, although the dates are subject to discussion. The internship is paid according to the Belgian legal framework of “Convention d’Immersion Professionnelle” (remunerated with €800 net a month). T&E is an equal opportunities employer.
The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday, 21 June, and interviews will take place in the following two weeks, with a view to the candidate starting in the week of 1 September.
