Job Description

The Summer Undergraduate Internship in Nonproliferation Studies at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies (MIIS) is a paid internship. Interns will be compensated at the same rate as graduate research assistants and will work with CNS staff members on substantive issues for one of the following Nonproliferation Programs:
* Eurasia
* East Asia
* Chemical and Biological Weapons
* International Organizations and Nonproliferation
* Export Control and Nonproliferation
* Middle East Nonproliferation

CNS is also a key innovator in using "New Tools" for nonproliferation research, pioneering the use of open source information and computer modeling to revolutionize nonproliferation and disarmament research and education. The creative use of satellite imagery, geospatial data, 3-dimensional (3D) modeling, virtual reality environments, and social media platforms provides exciting new opportunities for NGOs working on nonproliferation issues.
CNS's research interests also cover Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Terrorism and regional nonproliferation issues including the Middle East and South Asia.
In addition to assigned research work, interns may develop their own research projects under the guidance of CNS staff. Interns may also have an opportunity to present results of their independent research as appropriate at the end of the program. As part of the training aspects of the internship program, interns attend seminars and lectures held at CNS throughout the summer. The duration of the internship should be two to three months between early June and end of August.
