Loreto (Peruvian Amazon) Internship

The Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) is seeking exceptionally motivated undergraduate students, graduate students, and graduates for the opportunity to gain experience in environmental policy and assessing economic development activities in the Peruvian Amazon. Interns/externs work full or part-time during the school year, and may receive credit from their schools. Summer interns typically work full-time during the summer months. Due to limited resources, internships and externships are unpaid.

More information on CIEL's Peruvian Amazon Project can be found on the Loreto Project page.

Responsibilities of an intern for the project include researching and writing about land use and economic development activities, environmental and social policies, and indigenous peoples' territories and rights; research on current events in the Loreto region; assisting with policy analysis; attending meetings and conferences; assisting with the production of CIEL publications; translation of materials between English and Spanish; work on website maintenance and other social media; data entry; and otherwise working closely with CIEL staff on various projects.

Successful applicants generally possess excellent research and writing skills and a strong dedication to public interest work. Applicants for the Loreto Project internship must be fluent in written and spoken Spanish. CIEL actively seeks applicants with diverse backgrounds.
