EJI Internship Programme

Principle information

You are a university student and Environmental Justice research is of your interest? The EJI has an internship programme and we are always (and ongoing) interested in receiving your application.

The Environmental Justice Institute (EJI) was founded in 2014 with the aim to support academic research - even though funded and registered in Germany - around the world that focusses on environmental impacts. We are commited to support young fellow researchers in their aim to gather information, find contacts, and get funding for their projects.

The EJI is an only-online think tank and internships consequentially require a high level of independence and discipline as consultations and instructions will be discussed either by Skype or using Adobe Connect's virtual classroom. We thus encourage everyone to contribute in our many fields according to your preferences. Our operating language is English.

To get an idea about how an internship can be, watch this video made by a former intern with the EJI:
