Managing the Atom Internships, Harvard Kennedy School
ANNOUNCEMENT: The Managing the Atom Project (MTA) at the Harvard Kennedy School actively seeks Student Associates for the Spring and Summer of 2011. These unpaid internships provide opportunities for students to meet experts in the security field, attend lectures and seminars, and actively participate in ongoing nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear energy research.
MTA conducts and disseminates policy-relevant research on nuclear weapons, nuclear energy, and nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. The project supports an international group of pre- and post-doctoral fellows and other experts working on these issues and helps to advance their work through seminars, workshops, and conferences.
MTA Student Associates work on a variety of tasks including: providing research assistance for faculty, fellows and staff; helping to coordinate seminars and events; helping with website and database maintenance; and a variety of other tasks integral to the Project's success.
This position is a tremendous opportunity to learn more about foreign policy and nuclear issues, while getting hands-on experience in both research and administrative work. Summer Associates may dedicate up to 40 hours per week to the program. We understand that as an unpaid internship other sources of income may be required. We are therefore, flexible with time divided between MTA and a part-time job. MTA is willing to work with students seeking academic credit for the internship.
To obtain an application, or for further information, please contact Neal Doyle (Project Coordinator) by phone at 617-495-4219 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2011 POSITIONS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED BY May 1, 2011.
