RESEARCH INTERNSHIP (ongoing)
The Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control is seeking an intern to conduct research for its Risk Report database and Iran Watch website. Wisconsin Project interns are accomplished students with an interest in nonproliferation and conducting in-depth research.
Interns will use a variety of open sources to conduct research on proliferation networks and write profiles of entities in these networks, for publication in the Risk Report and/or on Iran Watch. Through this research, interns will gain valuable experience in unclassified information gathering and source vetting. The research will also involve learning about autonomous and international sanctions and U.S. and multilateral export control regulations.
Candidates must have strong research and writing skills. Familiarity with techniques and information sources that can be applied to proliferation research, including trade and other large data sets, geospatial and network analysis, and GIS applications is preferred. Proficiency in a foreign language, particularly Chinese (Mandarin), Farsi, Korean or Arabic, would be helpful.
The internship is a paid position. A three-month commitment of at least 30 hours per week is required.
The Project is a private, non-profit, non-partisan organization located in Washington D.C. founded in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin.
To apply: Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. No calls please.
