Internships at the IAEA: The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) accepts a limited number of interns each year.

The internships are awarded to persons studying toward a university degree or who have recently received a degree.

The purpose of the programme is:

  • To provide interns with the opportunity to gain practical work experiences in line with their studies or interests, and expose them to the work of the Agency and the United Nations as a whole;
  • To benefit the Agency´s programmes through the assistance of qualified students specialized in various professional fields.

    The duration of internships is normally not less than three months and not more than one year. However, a minimum of one month is also accepted.

    Internship Application Eligibility Criteria:

    Individuals may apply up to two years after the completion of their bachelor´s, master´s, or doctorate degree.

    The Agency provides medical insurance for the duration of each internship. Under certain conditions, the Agency may pay for an intern´s travel. Interns may receive a stipend to cover basic subsistence costs.

    How to Apply:

    Applications must be completed and submitted by post, fax or e-mail, accompanied by a cover letter, two signed letters of recommendation, and most recent academic transcript (optional), three to six months prior to the preferred start date of the internship.
