DescriptionThis internship is available immediately!
This internship is located in Chicago. Applicants must be located in Chicago to apply.
Come be a part of this groundbreaking research project! While making a difference, the intern will learn about the sustainable residential real estate market in the Chicago-land area. The goal of this research is to change the way people think about green building and sustainable practices to impact the future now.
The Green Building database management assistant will create market data on sustainable residential real estate – third-party certified or homes with green features, and their performance in a conventional market. He/she will oversee database management, input into the database of Chicago’s sustainable, “green” residential development, and perform analyses of market trends. This intern will also report results and create progress reports. As a part of this program, the intern will gain real-world database management experience, learn about sustainable residential development in the Chicago-land area and contribute to a groundbreaking research project. Other administrative and programmatic activities are also included in internship tasks.
As this project is in its primary stages, the intern will work with our research team to help input and analyze data on sustainable residential real estate – third-party certified or homes with green features, and its performance in a conventional market. The intern will primarily spend time working in Microsoft Excel and Access, transferring our Excel spreadsheet into an interoperable database.
The first two weeks of this internship will be training on real estate, green building and building science.
Weekly time commitment negotiable; 10-20 hours/week with a lunch/transit stipend.
