|Project Title||Ukraine Energy Efficiency Intern|
|Project Summary||In Ukraine, energy efficiency IS energy security, so research on this emerging sector is in high demand!|
|Agency||Department of State|
|Number of Interns||1|
U.S. Embassy Kyiv’s Economic Section is looking for an intern to conduct research on legislation, policy, and grassroots efforts that could improve or weaken Ukraine’s energy efficiency efforts. The intern will have the opportunity to draft policy papers, develop databases to track energy efficiency projects, create fact sheets and talking points, and complete other written research documents. This internship is perfect for students interested in the intersection between energy and government policy, especially in post-communist countries in Eastern Europe. You’ll also get feedback on how to write effectively for U.S. government audiences, a better idea about how U.S. foreign policy is formed and shaped, and an enthusiastic supervisor who will talk your ear off about careers in international affairs with the U.S. government.
Intern should have an interest in learning about international relations, government policy, and/or energy issues but an academic background in these topics is not required. We are looking for someone with curiosity, great internet search skills, and the ability to think strategically and write persuasively. Russian and/or Ukrainian language is a plus for open source searches, but not a requirement.
