World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a Food Waste Data Analyst Intern.
The production and consumption of food constitutes the biggest environmental threat to our planet. Eliminating waste and shifting consumption patterns represents our biggest opportunity to establish sustainable and regenerative food systems. Addressing food waste is critical – from field - to fork - to landfill. WWF’s Food Waste program is focused on institutional engagement and behavior change with private and public-sector partners. Our goal is to increase the speed and scale of solutions that make a more sustainable future possible. We accomplish this by convening science-based, multi-stakeholder groups to build awareness and consensus around urgent issues and trends and develop approaches to advance innovation and accelerate change at scale. This internship provides an opportunity for an undergraduate student to learn more about environmental sustainability, specifically food waste prevention and recovery, by working on an initiative that is focused on analyzing global solutions related to food system efficiency and consumption.
This internship will work directly with the Director and the Senior Program Officer of the Food Waste program and will support ongoing research efforts and in-depth data analysis, with specific focus on the hospitality industry and the food retailing industry. This position will be a great educational experience and may help pilot interventions with private sector partners that attempt to find food waste prevention best practices.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a Global Science Network Intern for Spring 2018.
Sound science underpins effective conservation. WWF has a wealth of scientific expertise across its offices around the world, ranging from anthropologists to zoologists and encompassing the biological, physical, and social sciences. For these scientists to contribute most to achieving WWF’s mission, they need to communicate, collaborate, and coordinate with each other. A range of services to enable these interactions and facilitate access to the latest scientific information is being provided by the new WWF Conservation Science Network. We are looking for a motivated intern to help us continue to develop and promote the GSN, with an emphasis on maintaining and growing online resources.
