Are you a recent graduate wanting to develop your expertise in defence, national and cyber security and strategic policy? Do you want to inform the public and government on critical strategic choices facing Australia and learn what it takes to be a professional strategic analyst? If so, you might be interested in applying for the ASPI Research Internship Program.

Interns make an important contribution to the ASPI research effort. If successful, you would be employed from February - December 2023 to assist research staff, conduct some of your own research and provide support for a range of ASPI events and activities.

Our aim is to nurture the next generation of strategic thinkers in Australia. We want to give you the opportunity to make a practical contribution to developing strategic policy and, in the process, gain some valuable 'on the job' training. An ASPI Internship will provide access to some of Australia’s key contributors to defence and national security policy debates, through working with our staff and observing roundtable discussions with local and international visitors to ASPI.

Program Status

Internship Applications for 2023 are currently CLOSED, however, we have now opened applications for our First Nations Pathway Research Internship 2023 Program.
