Summer Internship

Research & Development

Description

  • The UIL Summer 2024 Graduate Research Intern will be an integral member of the team during a formative time in the UIL’s journey. The Intern will support the team as we sharpen the UIL’s approach and build our consumer insights service by analyzing and synthesizing quantitative and qualitative data related to clean cooking customers and potential customers. This will include conducting literature reviews to summarize the evidence base behind UIL hypotheses and projects, and conducting secondary “deep dive” analyses of UIL project data. Initial project topics relate to cookstove labeling, subsidy design, behavior change campaigns, and social network dynamics. Additional specific projects will be co-created with the Intern based on the candidate’s expertise and interest. Strong candidates will bring a foundational understanding of research, a drive to understand people and what drives their decisions, and experience with qualitative and quantitative analysis. More information about the UIL’s work will be shared during the interview process.
