Job Description

The Stimson Center's Partnerships in Proliferation Prevention Program supports international efforts to increase national, regional and international capacity to prevent the spread of nuclear, chemical, biological, and radiological weapons and their means of delivery, helping to empower those who keep the worst weapons out of the worst hands. The Partnerships in Proliferation Prevention team is currently focused on three research topics: laws and regulations related to the security of radioactive sources; laws, regulations and standards related to the security of chemical materials and related facilities; and helping States find assistance in implementing their nonproliferation obligations, especially under UN Security Council resolution 1540 (2004). More broadly, the Program team works closely with governments, international and sub-regional organizations, industry, NGOs and academia to reduce the risk that proliferators, terrorists, and other criminals can acquire the technologies, materials, finance and expertise that could contribute to the spread of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery.

The Proliferation Prevention Program is part of Stimson's Promoting Security & Prosperity program, which addresses a range of issues related to WMD and conventional arms proliferation, such as trade and technology security and safeguards. Promoting Security and Prosperity experts and researchers work to identify the growing interlinkages between these security challenges, look for ways to catalyze innovative solutions in terms of government responses, and develop smart public-private partnerships to combat these threats. The Stimson Center also encourages cross-programmatic work.

Responsibilities for an intern include:

* Research, writing, analysis, and editing
* Coordination and organization of events
* Representing Stimson at meetings and related events
* Programmatic and Administrative support

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

* Strong interest in multidisciplinary and innovative solutions to WMD proliferation challenges
* Basic understanding of WMD nonproliferation issues
* Strong research, analysis, writing, and editing skills, including experience in archival research
* Strong skills in Microsoft Office
* Experience in quantitative data analysis
* Familiarity with WordPress
* Familiarity with Google Analytics
* 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

This internship is unpaid. 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.
