Understanding the development of the green economy and environmental policies at State level in the USA
Organisation: KMatrix and UCL
Supervisors: Mark Maslin (UCL) and Stephen Howard (KMatrix)

A multi-source triangulation approach has been developed by KMatrix to estimate the full size of the green economy, including the supply chain, for the major economic powers. According to our estimates the full US green economy is worth $1.3 trillion in annual sales revenue and employs nearly 9.5 million Americans (measured as full time equivalents, FTEs). In this project we wish the successful post-graduate intern to analysis this huge data set at a State level to understand the internal and international flows of goods and services. We need a trained environmental scientist with a working knowledge of economics to complete this one month project which can be taken on a part-time basis. The green economy is a key component of the US economy and this work will help support future policies need ensure continued competitiveness and increased environmental protection.

This internship would be suitable for part-time study.


This internship is available to students who have completed their PhD and viva within the last 12 months. The start date is flexible, but internships must start between October 2018 and March 2019. Please contact Claire Asher for more information about the internship scheme.

The deadline for applications is the 10th September 2018.
