Supporting national security research with impact

CPOST has multiple internship opportunities for UChicago undergraduate and graduate students to work as research assistants on our various projects.

Student Interns are critical to CPOST research. They collect and catalog data, produce analyses, and present research findings.

CPOST interns work 10 hours a week during each quarter of the academic year.  Summer interns work full time during 8 of the 10 weeks of the summer quarter.
