The Strategic Trade Control (STC) program offers graduate students beginning careers in export controls, nonproliferation, counterproliferation studies or national security programs an opportunity to gain experience in threat analysis, international engagement and program development. STC interns will work alongside Argonne employees, supporting programs that counter efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction.
Interns will support the development of an analytical tool that identifies networks involved in the illicit procurement of strategically sensitive goods, uncover proliferation diversion methods and counter these efforts to advance worldwide security. This support is expected to include data acquisition, beta testing and data analysis of proliferation activities.
STC interns may work on projects sponsored by a variety of U.S. government agencies, which include Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration, Department of State and Department of Defense.
