"All I have to say to Trump, abandon this reckless game before it’s too late! You are deluding yourself if you think you’ve been dealt all the trump cards. Your imaginary perfect is the enemy of the good. The JCPoA is a good deal. Signed not only by the United States, but also by six other countries (including Russia), it is working well. All the parties are abiding by their commitments. There can be no deal with Iran without Iran itself. Your imaginary grand bargain is a folly; it has no basis in reality." — Dr. Vladimir A. Orlov, Member of the UN Secretary-General’s Advisory Board on Disarmament Matters, PIR Center founder.

“In the Universe there is a certain order of its existence, we are part of the universe, and we swung to an atom and decided to create a weapon, that could be a way of destroying the present mankind. I do not know if I understood this in 1995, but now and for a long time I am convinced that this is one of the ways of the extinction of mankind, and it can happen. Every day, it is necessary to think about how to avoid the annihilation of mankind” - Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador Roland Timberbaev, member of the PIR Center Advisory Board.

Careers and Internship Opportunities

Internship Opportunities

Students may spend their fourth semester in the United States, Russia, or another location. They are expected to do an internship of at least 12-weeks duration. MGIMO, MIIS, and PIR Center will assist with internship placement, including the possibility of intern positions in government agencies, international organizations, and think tanks. Possible international organizations for internship placement include the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA), the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), and the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO).

 

Careers in Nonproliferation, Nuclear Energy, and Security

Students will gain skills they can apply immediately, while they are still in school. When students graduate they will become part of the worldwide networks of MIIS and MGIMO alumni. These networks will open doors wherever they go.

They pursue careers in governments, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), international organizations, and the private sector. Others who have an interest in an academic career go on to obtain doctorates at major research universities.

 

Nikita Perfilyev

Intern and research fellow in PIR Center (2006–2010), PhD student in MGIMO (2007), and graduate of the MA in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies program at MIIS (2008–2011). Currently officer in the capacity building and training section at the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO). 

“If PIR Center’s Nonproliferation Summer School gave me a taste of the subject then a master’s degree from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS) was a gateway to the world of multilateral diplomacy and international organizations working in the field of nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation. In Monterey I received world-class training in nuclear policy issues, which allowed me to join the CTBTO at the professional level with minimal adjustment time. The practical focus of curricula at MIIS enabled me to contribute to solving challenges facing the CTBTO from day one of my work. Although I had to choose between continuing my studies at MGIMO and going to Monterey, with the new PIR Center-MGIMO-Monterey dual degree program there is no need to compromise anymore. The joint degree will provide an opportunity for students studying in Russia to benefit from experience of all three partners”
 

Sarah Bidgood

MANPTS ’16, graduate of the PIR Center School on Global Security 

Participating in the PIR Center’s Security School was a truly unique opportunity. Not only was it a chance for me to learn about the Russian perspective on issues critical to global security, but it allowed me to interact on a personal level with Russian and Russian-speaking peers. My fellow participants could not have been more welcoming or more interested in my opinion on the current state of affairs. The lasting friendships I cultivated on the trip give me hope that my generation will be able to overcome diplomatic tensions and work cooperatively together in our future careers. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity.
