CBW Internship Opening - Washington, DC Nonproliferation Internships
Student internship positions available at the CNS Washington, DC office.
The Washington, DC, office of the Monterey Institute's James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS-DC) has an immediate opening for an intern with its Chemical and Biological Weapons program. This internship will last into the fall, depending on project needs.
The intern will be working alongside experts of biological and chemical weapons issues, while sharpening their knowledge of the field and improving their research and writing skills. The internship program also provides the opportunity to learn how non-governmental organizations impact national and international foreign policy-making. Expectations for interns are high and successful applicants will have the opportunity to publish independent research through CNS publications and other outlets.
CNS-DC Internship Project Areas
The internship does not require extensive expertise in chemical and biological weapons, but candidates should be highly motivated, have the ability to work independently, and be interested in and knowledgeable about foreign affairs. CNS-DC is looking in particular for individuals with an interest and/or background in chemical and biological weapons (CBW) technology and policy. Interns will work directly with the CBW project's senior staff and research associates.
CNS-DC internships are primarily focused on substantive assignments, but will include administrative support duties, as needed. Intern tasks may include:
Throughout the internship, participants are encouraged to attend congressional hearings, meetings, seminars, and workshops relevant to their assignments and professional aspirations. Interns are also encouraged to work on an independent research project for potential publication on the CNS website.
