CNT works closely with interns to ensure that they receive academic credit for internships, whenever possible. Interns should be enrolled in or recent graduates of an undergraduate or graduate program in a relevant field.

Interns are compensated at $20/hour. CNT does not offer unpaid internships. Qualifications for all internships include the following:

  • Commitment to CNT’s mission of equity, sustainability, resilience
  • Good research, writing, and communication skills
  • Independent worker but able to work well with a team
  • Accuracy and attention to detail
  • Ability to meet deadlines and manage multiple, competing projects
  • Experience with relevant software, which varies by position but includes programs like ArcGIS, Adobe products, R, Salesforce, and a variety of other packages

CNT is now seeking to hire a part-time intern for fall 2021 to assist with several analytical transportation projects. The intern will need strong quantitative skills, including spatial analysis, and ability to work with transportation and demographic datasets. Graduate students are preferred but analytically strong undergraduate students would be considered as well. Projects will include evaluating disparities in transit service quality, researching the impact of COVID-19 on transit agencies across the nation, and assisting with development of a tool to influence business location decisions based on transportation accessibility, among others. The selected intern will be compensated at a rate of $20 per hour and will be expected to work at least 10 hours per week, with more hours possible if desired.

Please send a resume and cover letter to Bridget Torres at to express interest. CNT is an equal opportunity employer that does not discriminate against any employee or job applicant based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran status, or marital status. CNT hopes for its intern program to contribute to increasing the diversity of the sustainability and urban planning fields and encourages applicants from underrepresented backgrounds.
