In FocusVacancy: Two-week summer journalism internship at Carbon Brief

Carbon Brief is offering an exciting opportunity for a student, or recent graduate, to work at our central London office for two weeks this summer. This journalism internship will be paid the London Living Wage, with an additional travel bursary.

Job description

Carbon Brief’s award-winning journalism and analysis is respected by scientists, journalists, policymakers and campaigners around the world. We write articles and create data visualisations, infographics and videos, all to report on and explain the latest climate science and related policy issues.

You’ll spend time shadowing members of staff and helping out with the different tasks carried out by each part of the team. These all centre on climate change, but include policy writing, science writing, multimedia and social media.

If you’re interested in whether Shell’s new climate scenario is as “radical” as it says, or the significance of low sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic this winter, then this is the placement for you.
