About the Center for Energy Policy and Management
The Washington & Jefferson College Center for Energy Policy and Management (CEPM) provides opportunities for scientists, industry leaders, elected officials, advocates and citizens to shape policy related to the country's full array of energy sources while working to minimize environmental impact and promote economic growth. Situated atop a wealth of natural resources in Southwestern Pennsylvania, the CEPM is dedicated to enriching the civil discussion of the country's energy future by bringing experts together in a spirit of mutual respect and concern for the common good. One of its major projects, The Washington & Jefferson Energy Index generates analyses of the nation’s progress towards energy independence and security and translates these analyses into a relatable format that is easily comprehensible to the common citizen.
The Center for Energy Policy and Management seeks a highly motivated W&J student in good academic standing for a year-long fellowship to assist with work on research and policy advocacy, planning and coordination of the W&J Energy Lecture Series and spearheading mass media campaigns through a variety of social networks. Fellows report directly to and work under supervision of the CEPM's Director, alongside its advisory board which comprises of leaders in the business industry, law and academia.
Qualified candidates must have strong social and communication skills, along with the ability to write effective project proposals and prepare briefs on case studies.
