ENergy and the environment research lab - student intern

[posted on September 7th, 2018]

The Energy and the Environment Research Lab (EERL) at Cornell University is interested in recruiting a student intern to join an ongoing project to form a state-wide Internet of Things (IoT) network. A short description of this project can be found at under “Bridging the NYS Rural and Urban Divide through a Public 'Internet of Things’”.

This student, along with the rest of the Engagement team, will collect information from and form continuing relationships with members of Cornell Cooperative Extension offices in counties throughout New York, with the eventual goal of installing IoT hardware as a way to track resource usage in these offices.

The ideal candidate should:

  • Have a strong interest in sustainable energy and community engagement
  • Be able to work closely with the technical team and outside groups to continuously improve the hardware and software.

Access to a personal vehicle is preferred, but not absolutely necessary. Those who are interested in this opportunity should send their resumes to the Lead of the Engagement team, Chris Westersund <>.
