Internship Opportunities

The internship program at The New Atlantis is designed to give undergraduate and graduate students experience researching, writing, and editing for a publication and related projects in Washington, D.C. It is aimed especially at students with an interest in the social, political, and ethical implications of advances in science and technology.


Applications for summer 2017 internships are due by Monday, March 13, 2017.

During the academic year, we offer internships on a rolling basis — meaning that there are no set deadlines or start dates.
