The Nuclear Safeguards Program (NSP) offers a unique opportunity to gain experience in the field of nuclear non-proliferation, nuclear materials security and control. The NSP examines evolving international safeguards obligations on states and industry and works to promote best practices to ensure effective application of global non-proliferation obligations. It involves cross-cutting research from the front-end of the fuel cycle (mining, milling conversion) to the back-end (waste storage and disposal), including future emerging facilities, such as deep geological repositories and multinational fuel cycle facilities, and how these facilities, coupled with emerging technologies, challenge and/or enhance the management of safeguards.

The NSP is part of Stimson's Promoting Security & Prosperity (PSP) Initiative which cultivates research, analysis, and on-the-ground activities to identify pragmatic policy solutions to some of today's most pressing threats to international security and economic vitality. Comprised of seven distinct yet collaborative programs, the PSP convenes stakeholders and works to chronicle and develop innovative responses to an array of transnational challenges at the national, regional, international levels.

Responsibilities for an intern include:

  • Research, writing, analysis, and editing for NSP publications
  • Coordination of NSP events
  • Representing Stimson at meetings and related events
  • Administrative support

Generally, strong candidates for this internship will have the following qualifications:

  • Strong interest in multidisciplinary and innovative solutions to nuclear proliferation challenges
  • Strong research, analysis, writing, and editing skills, including experience in archival research
  • Excellent attention to detail and a commitment to high-quality work
  • Flexibility to work effectively both independently, without supervision, and as part of a team
  • Full-time availability


Graduate students are encouraged to apply. Experience in nuclear issues is preferred, but not essential. Also, any experience in Blockchain technology would be valuable.


Applicants must be able to commit to a minimum of 20 hours per week. Preference may be given to those available 30+ hours per week. Please submit your resume, cover letter, and short (no more than 5 pages) writing sample as a single PDF
