NTI interns play critical roles on our teams, working to advance our mission objectives while learning more about the WMDD community in the process. Responsibilities can include research and analytic support, event logistics support, and administrative tasks necessary for accomplishing team objectives.
NTI welcomes applications from those interested in and with expertise relevant to our core programs:
NTI | bio: NTI’s Biosecurity program seeks to reduce biological risks associated with advances in technology, create new approaches to improve infectious disease surveillance, and identify and fill gaps to measurably strengthen global health security capabilities with a strong focus on biosecurity.
Development (DEV): The Development Team works to identify and cultivate funding prospects, and to solicit contributions for NTI’s important work from individuals, foundations, corporations, and governments. In addition to learning about NTI’s programmatic work, interns will gain practical experience in conducting research; writing proposals, briefings, letters and grant reports; and development strategy implementation.
Global Nuclear Policy Program (GNPP): The Global Nuclear Policy Program works with leaders and partners around the world to develop policies, leadership, and the global capacity—human and institutional—to reduce reliance on nuclear weapons, prevent their spread and use, and ultimately end them as a threat to the world. GNPP also leads NTI’s congressional outreach.
International Nuclear Fuel Cycle Strategies (FC): FC seeks to develop pragmatic international fuel cycle approaches that reinforce key nonproliferation principles while enabling peaceful uses of nuclear energy, including through verification and monitoring for both civilian nuclear activities and for arms control/disarmament initiatives.
Materials Risk Management (MRM): MRM’s mission is to prevent nuclear and radiological terrorism. The MRM program works with governments, industry, international organizations, and experts to minimize these risks by securing, minimizing, and, where possible, eliminating dangerous nuclear and radiological materials, and promoting sustainable materials management practices. The MRM program also seeks to strengthen the global institutional capacity for managing these materials and promotes cooperation to reduce nuclear and radiological threats.
Science and Technical Affairs (STA): STA seeks to capture the opportunities new and emerging technologies afford while working to reduce the impact of their malevolent use. STA works to address the growing and potentially catastrophic cyber threat to nuclear systems and facilities around the world and monitors the risks and potential benefits of big data and artificial intelligence, among other emerging technologies.
