NTI Interns play a critical role within each of our teams working to advance our mission objectives while learning more about existential risks to humanity.

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), a non-profit whose mission is to transform global security by driving systemic solutions to nuclear and biological threats imperiling humanity, offers paid internship positions three times per year. Approximately 6-8 positions are made available in the Spring, Summer, and Fall of each year. These positions are open to undergraduate students with at least two years of study, graduate students, and/ or those who demonstrate co-equal qualifying experience. Interns are paid the District of Columbia minimum wage rate of $16.10 per hour and offered paid sick leave hours.

Each intern class exact start dates shift slightly from year to year to accommodate the academic calendar and NTI pay cycles.
