Data System Support - Part-time Internship
Are you looking for an opportunity to be an entrepreneur and help commercialize an innovation that will improve the environment, water quality, and quality of life for all? Do you see yourself joining a team that is committed to sustainability, protecting the environment, and supporting a diversity of people in science, technology, and engineering careers? If so, then read on about a new opportunity as an Intern at Enspired Solutions. 
This hourly position is part-time (up to 20 hours/week) for summer 2024. It has been designed to give the Intern entry-level exposure to the startup world and working with a new technology.



About Enspired Solutions
Enspired Solutions is a women-owned startup established to tackle one of the most pressing environmental issues worldwide. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been widely used for more than 60 years to make firefighting foams, coatings, and lubricants. PFAS are known to be toxic and, due to their high stability in natural environments, they are also called “forever chemicals.” Existing, commercial treatment technologies capture PFAS for disposal elsewhere. These disposal methods risk re-releasing PFAS into the environment. Enspired Solutions is commercializing a USEPA-award-winning, patented chemical technology to permanently destroy PFAS in water and return them to non-toxic molecular components without the need for off-site disposal. We call our UV-based water treatment reactor the PFASigator™ and foresee that it will become an in-demand water treatment technology.

Our startup company is set to expand rapidly, and we need energetic, self-motivated interns to join our diverse team and help us meet our growth needs.
