IIP Placements in St. Lucia
Caribbean Environmental Health Institute (CEHI)
Location: Castries, St. Lucia
CEHI, an inter-governmental agency of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), is responsible for environmental management, with a specific focus on environmental health. Its mandate includes the provision of technical and advisory services to the 16 member states of CARICOM. IIP interns will work on projects related to one or more of the following areas: watershed and coastal water and pollution management, coastal ecology, waste management, chemicals management, indoor air quality assessments and environmental impact assessments. Specific responsibilities may include literature reviews, website design and database development, surveys, field sampling, engineering design, laboratory analyses, assisting with technical presentations and workshop logistics, and writing reports. The main language in Saint Lucia is English although many St. Lucians also speak French and Spanish. Strong writing skills, website design skills, and experience in conducting surveys and laboratory analyses would be an asset. Two placements have been created for International Internship Program (IIP) interns. This internship is offered in partnership with the Program in Global Health and Health Policy and can be used by GHP juniors for completion of the GHP Summer Research Requirement (please check the appropriate box on your application).
