Internships

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.

About the Internship Program

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. All NTI interns are paid $15.20 per hour and have access to paid sick leave.

Each class of interns joins NTI for several months; however, the timing of classes shifts slightly from year to year to accommodate the academic calendar and pay cycles. Their timing is roughly as follows:

Spring – February to May

Summer – June to August

Fall – September to December

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. Our internships are substantive opportunities where interns are deeply embedded into NTI’s teams, contributing research and analysis to ongoing projects. They also include administrative components as needed. NTI’s internship program prioritizes building skills and experience and includes structured professional development opportunities — many intern alumni have gone on to have stellar careers in their chosen fields. In addition to internship with our nuclear and biological program, we offer opportunities to work on NTI’s Communications and Development teams.

NTI opens applications for each intern class three to four months prior to the start of the next session. Applications then remain open for two to three weeks only, after which our selection committee processes and responds to all applications.
