National Nuclear Security Administration Graduate Fellowship Program

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Graduate Fellowship Program (NGFP) is building the next generation of leaders for global nuclear security. During their year-long, salaried (plus benefits) positions, Fellows receive specialized training, career development, and professional networking, while directly supporting NNSA’s nuclear security mission. Fellows work alongside NNSA experts in hands-on policy or technical placements at NNSA locations nationwide. Fellows make powerful programmatic contributions that are shaping the technologies and decision making for nuclear materials detection and the security of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile. Applicants must be U.S. citizens eligible for a high-level security clearance and be accepted into, enrolled in, or graduating from a master’s or Ph.D. program during the year of application. Typical policy candidate backgrounds include international relations, security or nonproliferation studies, political science, public administration, economics, and related fields. Typical technical candidate backgrounds include nuclear physics/engineering, chemical engineering, radiation health physics, radiochemistry, chemical sciences, and related fields. A combined policy and technical background is highly desirable. Knowledge of a foreign language is a plus. Students with backgrounds in safety and health, infrastructure and operations management, or finance/accounting are also encouraged to apply.  Applications are generally accepted March through early October for positions beginning the following summer. Visit http://ngfp.pnnl.gov to learn more and apply.
