Opportunities


The Initiative supports a number of energy-related opportunities for faculty and students, including research, student projects and fellowships. MITEI also works closely with its Members who are interested in offering internships to MIT students. In addition to these MITEI-sponsored opportunities, the Initiative periodically receives notice of opportunities offered by academic institutions, industry, government and non-profit organizations that are open to the MIT community.

Do you have a research, internship, volunteer or fellowship opportunity you'd like to contribute? Please contact us at askmitei@mit.edu to submit an opportunity listing.
