Internships at the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency)

Practical Experience in an International Environment
The 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. Interns are subject to the authority of the Director General and undertake to observe all applicable rules, regulations, instructions and procedures of the Agency.

Internship Fields
Interns are selected from candidates whose study disciplines are relevant to the Agency´s work in the following fields:
- Natural Sciences
- Social Sciences/Humanities
- Engineering
- Information Technology
- Administration and Management

In order to be eligible for the internship programme, applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have completed at least two years of full-time studies at a university or equivalent institution towards the completion of their first degree. Individuals may apply up to two years after the completion of their bachelor´s, master´s, or doctorate degree. Applications submitted after that time will not be considered.

A working (oral and written) knowledge of English is essential. Knowledge of other official Agency languages is an advantage. Interns should be able to adapt to an international, multicultural, multilingual environment, have good communication skills and be able to work in a team.
