Giving Green is looking for a student research intern!

Interns will work closely with our team on the research behind our public guide to climate giving. You'll dive deep into climate policy & tech, gain experience with applied research, and produce a real-world product. 

We research and publicize the best donation and investment opportunities in climate—that is, organizations doing impactful work with a strong need for additional funding—to empower everyone to give with confidence and move money towards high-impact solutions. Currently, we focus on US and Australian policy change, the carbon offset market for net-zero businesses, and sustainable investing.

Giving Green is an effective-altruist-aligned team with big ambitions. We operate semi-autonomously within IDinsight, a global development advisory firm. Launched just two years ago, Giving Green has moved hundreds of thousands of dollars and landed press mentions in Vox, the Atlantic, Time, and more.

Your responsibilities may include, depending on your background and interests:

  • Be Giving Green's "scout" - search for new and compelling charities and businesses, and make recommendations to our team for further research

  • Deep-dive into a certain climate solution and conduct literature reviews with the guidance of our research team 

  • Support the writing and editing of our research reports and communications content

Desired qualifications (note that strong candidates do not need to meet all of these qualifications):

  • Some experience with desk research: literature review, landscape analysis or market research, or similar

  • Passionate about stopping the climate crisis

  • Familiar with principles of effective altruism

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills in English

  • Ability to work independently and co-develop your own work timelines and products

  • Comfort with and enthusiasm for working on small, startup-like team

  • Entrepreneurial spirit, passion for taking action on climate change, and alignment with IDinsight’s values

To apply, fill out this short form!

Nuts and bolts:

  • Applications received by June 1 will be prioritized. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.

  • This role is intended for current students and we will prioritize candidates that are able to secure funding or credit from their universities.

  • We are intending to hire an intern for summer and/or fall 2022, but if you'd like you can also use this application to register interest in a 2023 internship.

  • We are a fully remote team. Interns must have legal authorization to work in the country in which they will be based.
