The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation is hiring a Research and Writing Intern for Summer 2019.

Interns will join our dedicated team of seven staff at our Santa Barbara headquarters to work on meaningful projects that advance our mission of educating, advocating, and inspiring action for a just and peaceful world, free of nuclear weapons.

The Research & Writing Intern will also be encouraged to pursue self-directed projects that contribute to the Foundation’s goals.

Projects will include:

  • Writing articles for the Sunflower Newsletter;
  • Writing articles for wagingpeace,org and other publications;
  • Monitor relevant policy, current events, and legislative developments;
  • Updating the content on;
