Environmental Health Fellowship – Summer 2020
This paid fellowship will provide a graduate student in Western Pennsylvania with the opportunity to deepen their academic understanding of environmental issues affecting the heavily-fracked region around Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The fellow will work in close collaboration with FracTracker’s expert team and with their academic advisor.
Depending on future public health circumstances, this position may be remote.
This position was developed in partnership with the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies and The Heinz Endowments.
Each spring, we welcome college and graduate-level students with a passion for the environment and data to join FracTracker Alliance as interns.
Working with FracTracker Alliance offers students and researchers invaluable resume-building work experience and networking opportunities. Not only will interns and visiting scholars work closely with members of our team, but they will also have the opportunity to learn about and contribute to many aspects of our oil and gas work. Interns and visiting scholars will also have the opportunity to participate in events that increase their professional networks and interact with our partner organizations.
