The Nuclear Security Working Group is looking for several research assistants to support a project on U.S. nuclear operations. The project brings together senior individuals with first-hand experience in various aspects of U.S. nuclear operations, from planning to command and control, to produce an open-source guide to how the United States manages and plans for the use of nuclear forces in the 21st century.


We’re looking for part-time research assistants who can support the project’s principal contributors with a mix of primary and secondary source research, citation tracking and editorial assistance.

Candidate Profile

Ideal candidates are hard working, organized, and can interact respectfully and humbly with high-level individuals. Some experience tracking down archival materials (i.e. from the National Security Archive, FRUS, presidential libraries) is a huge plus but not required.

Time Commitment

We can accommodate a variety of time commitments and work arrangements, including remote work. We expect this to involve 5-10 hours a week, although some weeks will involve more and some weeks will involve significantly less or none. We’re looking for individuals who can commit to supporting the project from now until late spring 2019.


Pay is based on experience; $15-20/hr
