TRSS Analyst Intern

Thomson Reuters Special Services is seeking qualified undergraduate and graduate students for a summer internship.  TRSS has a team-based culture where multiple inputs are valued and interns are challenged to think beyond the obvious. The organization strives to achieve professional and technical excellence, build lasting professional relationships, and make a difference in society.  The internship program is open to students representing multiple academic disciplines, eager to enhance their analytical, investigative, and technical skills.

During a 12 week internship the student will have the opportunity to work on various initiative based teams that focus on intelligence and law enforcement issues. Generally, duties involve assisting in analysis and reporting of data collected from a variety of sources to produce analytical reports, incident briefs on various activities, and threat assessments on organized groups.


  • Research various aspects of intelligence and law enforcement-based cases and illicit behavior (e.g., predictive analysis, trends, forecasting, and early warnings).
  • Examine analytical sources and create summaries of pertinent data.
  • Assist in the development of comprehensive training exercises and scenarios.
  • Develop and extending resource materials for TRSS in topical areas such as open sources, TRSS proprietary sources of information, foreign language resources, and international and domestic terrorism crimes or counter terrorism.

Some duties within TRSS are more technical in nature, and as such, applicants with a sound, technical background are desired but not required. These duties may include writing scripts to automate processes (e.g. PERL, Python, shell scripts) and creating small applications that help other analysts conduct intelligence assessments.  Students with knowledge of IRC, Mac OS X, P2P, and visual analytic software may have an opportunity to work on special projects.
