Belfer Center Programs or Projects: International Security; Managing the Atom; Science, Technology, and Public Policy


The Project on Managing the Atom (MTA) at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government seeks Student Associates for the Spring of 2015. These internships provide opportunities for undergraduate or graduate students to meet experts in nuclear policy, attend lectures and seminars, and assist MTA project faculty, staff, and fellows with their research. MTA will provide a modest hourly wage or academic credit for the internship. The MTA project conducts and disseminates policy-relevant research on a variety topics including:

  • Reducing the risk of nuclear and radiological terrorism
  • Stopping the spread of nuclear weapons
  • Reducing the dangers of existing nuclear stockpiles
  • Lowering the barriers to the safe, secure, and peaceful use of nuclear energy

The project supports an international group of pre- and post-doctoral fellows and other experts working on these issues.

MTA Student Associates provide research assistance for faculty, fellows, and staff, and occasionally help with other tasks, such as coordinating seminars and events, or helping with website and database maintenance. This part-time position is a great opportunity to learn more about nuclear policy issues, while getting hands-on experience in both research and administrative work. Applications will be accepted through February 3, 2015.
