The IAEA accepts a limited number of interns each year. The internships are awarded to persons studying towards a university degree or who have recently received a degree (see the Internship web pages for further details).
The purpose of the programme is:
-to provide interns with the opportunity to gain practical work experience in line with their studies or interests, and expose them to the work of the IAEA and the United Nations as a whole;
-to benefit the IAEA’s programmes through the assistance of qualified students specialized in various professional fields.
The duration of an internship is normally not less than three months and not more than one year.
The Department of Management (MT) provides a ‘platform of services’ that serves as a foundation for the successful delivery of the IAEA’s scientific and technical programmes. Its mission statement is as follows: „MT is a partner and a business enabler that champions change and efficiency, leveraging a common purpose“. Thus, among other support activities, it assists a scientific manager in recruiting the right expert, helps a technical officer coordinate the purchase of radiation equipment and ensures that all Board documents are translated and distributed on a timely basis to Member States.
The Division of Information Technology (MTIT) provides support to the IAEA in the field of ICT (information and communication technology), including information systems for technical programmes and management. It is responsible for planning, developing and implementing an ICT strategy, for setting and enforcing common ICT standards throughout the Secretariat and for managing central ICT services. The IAEA’s ICT infrastructure comprises state of the art hardware and software platforms in a partially decentralized environment. The Division has implemented an IT service management model based on ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) and Prince2 (Projects in a Controlled Environment) best practices.
The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) works in the Office of the Director of MTIT / Chief Information Officer (DIR-MTIT/CIO) and is accountable for the creation, implementation, and oversight of strategies and programs designed to reduce and mitigate information security risk across the Agency to a level tolerable to the organization. The CISO is supported by the Central Information Security Group (CISG) in this work.
The intern will assist the Central Information Security Group with running and maintaining the Information Security Roadmap for the Agency and providing support to the programmes that make up this roadmap (Information Security Management System, Security Awareness and Training, Risk Management and Identity and Access Management).
