Nanotechnology Project


Do You Know Nano? Internship Opportunities at the Project

The Woodrow Wilson CenterThe Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies is a fast-paced science policy group within the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC. The Project serves as a neutral, nonpartisan forum for study, discussion, and debate of the issues surrounding nanotechnology policy. The Project has become a reference point for information and analysis of these issues as it strives to bring the voices of policymakers, industry, and academia together to promote a fair and rational consideration of the risks and benefits of nanotechnology.

Current Opportunities

Part-Time Internship:

The Project is seeking qualified interns for Fall/Winter 2009. The Project’s internship program provides graduate and undergraduate level students an exciting opportunity to work the world of science policy and learn about the rapidly expanding field of nanotechnology. Past interns have worked with former officials of the EPA, FDA, and NIOSH on analyses of research and regulatory priorities at those agencies, and helped coordinate focus groups and national polls, prepare congressional testimony, compile the largest and most comprehensive database available of consumer products containing nanotechnologies—and worked on many other projects. For more information on the internship program at the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, please see the Intern Position Announcement. Questions? Email with Intern in the subject line. Applications are due by August 22, 2009.
