As nuclear power has increased worldwide, the demand for highly-trained safety, security, and safeguards professionals has also increased.
The Safeguards Internship Program offers students a unique and challenging opportunity at the Pacic Northwest NationalLaboratory (PNNL) in Richland, and Seattle, WA. Our program is designed to allow participants to gain knowledge in the foundation of nuclear safeguards, safeguards implementation, the evolution of safeguards, and contemporary political and technical challenges to safeguards while contributing to important safeguards-related work across the laboratory.
To ensure a valuable and hands-on experience, participants are paired with a mentor to provide advice and guidance as students work on nuclear safeguards-related projects. Some examples of assignments interns may be given include developing new sensors, working with hot cells, or writing papers with political implications for nonproliferation policy.

Managing the Atom Fellowship

The Project on Managing the Atom offers fellowships for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral scholars, and mid-career professionals, for one year, with a possibility for renewal. Research topics of interest include aspects of nuclear nonproliferation policy, nuclear weapons strategy, arms control, disarmament processes and verification, the future of nuclear energy, regional conflict and nuclear weapons, security for nuclear weapons and materials, and other issues of nuclear policy.

For Current doctoral students in the dissertation-writing stage, recent recipients of a Ph.D. or equivalent degree, and university faculty members and other mid-career professionals with relevant expertise.
