Transport & Environment (T&E), the leading Brussels-based NGO promoting cleaner transport in Europe, is offering an internship position for a period of six months, starting in February 2022.
The successful candidate will be working with T&E’s Trends and Analysis team, supporting T&E’s in-house quantitative analysis on road freight.
The successful candidate will have a strong foundation in programming (Python is a must) and ideally have some knowledge of transport modelling, data management and visualisation, and an interest in environmental conservation. Good interpersonal skills are essential as is a good level of English (the working language). Candidates should be able to work both autonomously and collaboratively.
Candidates with an engineering or economics background are strongly encouraged to apply, though anyone with relevant skills and interest will be considered.
This successful candidate will further develop T&E’s European transportation roadmap model (EUTRM). The main goal will be to fully implement trucks into the existing stock model framework, so that different categories and use profiles can be analysed. The overall objective of the project is to build evidence to help shape the EU’s upcoming proposal on Truck CO2 standards.
In addition, the selected person would also help with other projects within the team to gain a more fulfilling experience in working in the organisation.
The position is full-time, with a contract running from early February 2022 to late July 2022, although the dates are subject to discussion. The internship is paid according to the Belgian legal framework of “Convention d’Immersion Professionnelle” (remunerated with approximately €1400 net a month). T&E is an equal opportunities employer.
The deadline for applications is midnight 23 January, and interviews will take place in the week of 24 January.
Applications should be sent by email to email@example.com with the application form (downloadable above), cover letter and CV, all within one document and in the following order: application form, cover letter and CV. Please name the file as follows: Firstname_Lastname_TA2022_intern. Also, please ensure the title of the job vacancy is shown in the subject line of your email.
The cover letter, of one page maximum, and completed application form should explain the motivation and commitment to work with Transport & Environment’s aims, and also highlight examples from your previous work or studies that show us that you have the skills and competencies outlined above.
Transport & Environment offers great flexibility in work schedule and modality. However, preference will be given to candidates able to work on site in Brussels at least 2 days a week. Depending on the developing guidelines offered by the Belgian authorities regarding COVID-19, it may become necessary that the successful applicant starts under conditions of full-time teleworking.
We thank all candidates for their interest; however, we are only able to contact those who have been shortlisted. Only applicants with the existing right to work within the EU will be considered.
