Researching sustainable environment sanitation measures (China)
Are you interested in learning about sustainable solutions for environmental challenges? Are you fond of transferring theoretical knowledge to bring novel energy technology to new markets? Do you have strong research skills and are you familiar with the use of statistics software? If you are ready to travel to different project sites during your internship, this position might suit you. Ideally, you have a background in engineering, laboratory work or environmental sciences, specifically regarding biogas use and biomass energy. A driving licence is an asset.

The host of this project is the “Centre for Sustainable Environmental Sanitation” (CSES) at the University of Science and Technology in Beijing, China. CSES was created in 2007 with the objective to increase the capacity in the sector of sustainable environmental sanitation, food security, bioenergy and climate protection. Raising awareness for the benefits of productive biogas is a main focus of the researchers at CSES. While your base as a GLEN intern will be in Beijing, you will be assigned to participate in projects CSES runs in the city of Fuyang in China, in Dhaka in Bangladesh and in Apia in Samoa. Your travel costs will be covered by the project.

The three GLEN interns at CSES will support the work of the centre to contribute to the development of the productive biogas sector. During your work in China you will participate in the running of practical tests and research activities regarding the topic of upgrading Biogas to Biomethane. In Samoa and Bangladesh you will work on an assessment of biomass energy potential and support the development of productive biogas use. Interns are asked to bring their own laptops.

The scheduled time for the internship is three months between July and October 2016.

Training and seminars prior to the internship will be held in English.

The GLEN team will be formed by a French, a Hungarian and a German participant.
