Internships Available 

The Los Alamos Study Group ( has a limited number of internships available in 2015. The Study Group is located in the New Mexico “nuclear borderlands,” where an intense nuclear-military national security complex collides with a society often lacking basic security and characterized by income disparity, poverty, and related social ills.

Internships are somewhat flexible as to length, but will require a minimum commitment of six months beginning July 1, 2015. Internships will be based at the main Study Group office in Albuquerque, NM.

There will be a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 interns. Interns will live in cooperative housing in Albuquerque and will be paid $500/month for living expenses. An automobile or bicycle is helpful but not necessary.

Interns will be supervised by Study Group staff and assisted by mentors from the activist community and cooperating NGOs.

Qualified candidates will have completed at least an undergraduate degree and preferable have some relevant experience. Candidates of all adult ages are encouraged to apply.

Interns will gain not just experience in nuclear weapons issues but also experience, knowledge, and skills relevant to citizen intervention in other policy areas as well.

There will be opportunities for outdoor and cultural activities in beautiful New Mexico.

Interns will participate in:

  • Researching, analyzing, and writing in depth on key interrelated issues before Congress that will help shape U.S. nuclear weapons policy for the coming decades.
  • Lobbying Congress and working with key decisionmakers in the executive branch.
  • Assisting with the publication of email "Bulletins" for national and regional audiences.
  • Improving the Study Group web site.
  • Outreach to national and international organizations .
  • Improving media outreach and information clearinghouse services.

These internships will be as challenging as they are rewarding. If you are interested, please send a letter, resume or curricula vitae and a minimum of three references to:
