For technical students interested in global nuclear security, nonproliferation, or radiological/nuclear technologies, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Graduate Fellowship Program offers an unmatched opportunity. Fellows in this highly specialized program prepare to become next-generation leaders in global nuclear security, while gaining unique experience working with both technology and policy implementers. During the 12-month, full-time, salary-plus-benefits terms, Fellows work alongside NNSA experts in Washington, D.C. or  other NNSA site locations, helping shape the vision for future technologies  related to detection of nuclear materials and the security of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile. Fellows may work at U.S. Department of Energy national laboratories or visit them for project work, special training, and meetings, interacting with leading researchers in the field.  Fellows also receive specialized training and opportunities for career development and professional networking. Applicants must be U.S. citizens eligible for a high-level security clearance, who are accepted into, enrolled in, or will be graduating from a master’s or Ph.D. program during the year of application. Desirable academic specializations include nuclear physics/engineering, chemical engineering, radiation health physics, radiochemistry, chemical sciences, applied physics, and related fields. Some positions may also benefit from backgrounds in safety and health, infrastructure and operations management, or finance/accounting.  A combined policy and technical background is highly desirable, and a foreign language is a plus.  Applications typically are accepted beginning in early August through October 20th. Fellowship terms begin the following summer. Visit http://ngfp.pnnl.gov to learn more and apply.
