Position: Data internship

Location: Remote

Type: Short term internship

Deadline for Applications: rolling

Term: Temporary with potential for transition to permanent 

We are looking for an skilled data analyst intern to help us bring together the world's electricity infrastructure data. You can be based in any country around the world but will be working closely with our team in the UK and interfacing with our international partners.

About the Centre for AI & Climate: 


We are a non-profit company building the tools that enable the application of machine learning and AI to accelerate climate action. We are a growing team dedicated to finding the most strategic uses for machine learning to support climate action. We build the digital tools and resources necessary to support the development of machine learning driven climate applications. 


About the project:


One of the most significant challenges in applying AI to climate action is being able to find and access the data required. To address this, we are working on the development of an online data platform that brings together data from a range of sectors, and makes it easy to find and access data relevant to the transition to net zero. We are initially focussed on bringing together data on the electricity sector.


This project is being funded by the UK Government and supported by the Canadian Government, and is being delivered in partnership with CEIMIA, a Canadian AI Centre of excellence.



You will join a early stage and growing team focussed on enabling the application of AI to climate challenges. 




  • You will help identify datasets on electricity systems around the world

  • Depending on your proficiency you will help build data pipelines for these datasets

  • You will work with other interns, our product manager, the project back-end developer and others in the team.

  • You will develop occasional blog and social media posts describing your work.

  • You will be responsive to changing circumstances and be willing to support the team.


Qualifications and skills:


  • Knowledge of data collection and analysis tools

  • Familiarity with Python

  • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to convey complex concepts both technical and non-technical stakeholders.

  • Proactive and self-motivated

  • Familiarity with energy related data is beneficial but not essential

  • Comfortable in working in a startup-style culture (i.e. willing to do whatever is needed to get the job done even if it isn’t in this job description!)

  • Strong problem-solving and analytical skills.



The Centre for AI & Climate is a values-led organisation. We hold the following values as being especially important in delivering our mission:


  • Impact: We are in a climate crisis. We need to be highly focussed on work that can have the most impact. This means thinking big and being focussed.

  • Think differently: We need to innovate in order to accelerate the transition to net zero. We need to be continuously seeking new and better ways of doing things.

  • Obsessive user focus: Impact comes from listening carefully to those experiencing the challenges we are seeking to address, and rapidly building solutions to help them.

  • Kindness: how we do things intrinsically impacts the outcome of our work. We seek to create an internal culture and external reach based on collaboration, inclusivity and kindness.

How to Apply:


Please submit your CV and a cover note to Interviews will be conducted remotely.
