NTI is pleased to
offer paid ($15.00 per hour) remote internships
for the summer 2021 semester. NTI also welcomes applicants from
University-sponsored internship programs. The number of positions and areas of

radiological, and biological risks, as well as related risks associated with
advances in technology.
are especially well suited to undergraduate or graduate students with an
interest in the intersection of global affairs, public policy, science,
engineering, and national security. While an intern’s primary focus will be on
NTI activities and projects, we encourage our interns to participate virtually
in relevant congressional hearings, briefings at think tanks, or other career
enhancing opportunities, and to develop their professional network throughout the
internship. NTI provides each intern an opportunity to build a relationship
with a mentor in addition to a day-to-day manager to ensure the intern receives
regular guidance and feedback. NTI regularly hosts internal “brown bag”
sessions and seminars open to the public, which all interns are encouraged to participate.
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, assisting with event logistics and
support, and administrative tasks necessary for accomplishing team objectives.
