Welcome to the CU Cleantech Jobs Board! One of the primary activities at CU Cleantech is our Student Placement Program, where we match qualified students with internship, full time, and project-based work opportunities with companies and organizations in the cleantech space. This is a win-win for the students and companies: the students get great hands on experience to complement their academic programs and the companies get access to the amazing talent pool at the University of Colorado. These students are not only a great resource as interns, but are great candidates for post-graduation recruitment.
Listed below are all the jobs currently available through the CU Cleantech Student Placement Program. If you are interested in a particular position, we’d love to hear from you. Please check back often as we’re always adding new opportunities. If you’d like to receive a monthly update on the current offerings, please sign up for our newsletter. If you have any questions or comments about the CU Cleantech Student Placement Program or the Jobs Board, please contact our Manager of Student Activities, Candace Mitchell. If none of the opportunities below look like an interesting fit, please submit a general application and we’ll keep your information on file and be sure to contact you if we think you’d be a good fit for any new opportunities as they become available.
If you’re an employer and interested in having CU Cleantech assist with sourcing students for internships, full time, or project-based work, please contact Candace Mitchell, Student Activities Manager.
Student Placement Types
Internships: These make up a majority of the listings, and are targeted towards current students. Internship time commitments range from a few hours a week during the academic year to full 40 hour+ work weeks during the summer. Many of the internships are paid, though there are some unpaid internships as well. Organizations offering internship opportunities range from small startups to large multinational corporations to non-profits.
Full Time Jobs: For organizations looking to find recent (or soon to be) graduates of the University of Colorado, look no further! CU Cleantech has an extensive network of qualified students, and students don’t stay students for long!
Project Based Work: Not all companies have the resources or bandwidth to bring on interns for an extended period of time, but certainly could use some student talent for particular projects. Same goes for students, many students would love the opportunity for some real-world experience but can’t make a long-term commitment due to the rigors of the academic program. The project-based work placements fill this need by providing “mini” internship opportunities to help companies out with specific, short-term needs. The length of the projects range from just a few days to over a month. Some projects will serve as credit, while others will pay a stipend.
Volunteer: There are many great organizations working with CU Cleantech that bring on students on a volunteer basis. What these positions lack in monetary compensation they make up for with great experiences, connections and opportunities for personal growth.
