Job Description

The staff of the Northeast Office work to address the serious health and environmental threats associated with fracking, coal-burning power plants, toxic chemicals, and other sources of pollution. The Northeast Office continues efforts to head off the fracking boom in regions surrounding the Marcellus and Utica shales, including defending the rights of municipalities to enact zoning restrictions on oil and gas development. The Northeast Office also plays a key role in Earthjustice’s work to phase out coal-fired power plants, the country’s single biggest source of climate change pollution, toxic air and water pollution, and industrial waste. In addition, we fight to secure stronger protections of farmworkers from exposure to dangerous pesticides, tighter regulations of factory farms, and safeguards for overburdened communities that are impacted by chemical contamination of their air and water.

The Earthjustice Summer Clerkship position includes a weekly stipend of $1,280 a week, with the average clerkship lasting 10 weeks (approximately $12,800 total). The total stipend amount will be dependent on the extent of a clerk’s ability to secure outside funding. Earthjustice will pay $1,280 a week less the total amount received from other sources. We strongly encourage candidates to pursue outside funding, but the ability to secure outside funding will not be considered as part of the hiring decision. Note the stipend is taxed, so stipend payments are less applicable taxes.

Applications will close on September 23, 2022. We recommend submitting your application as soon as it is ready.
