The Fellow will be expected to research and write on pertinent and emergent topics, to organize and participate in expert workshops and larger public events in the U.S. and abroad, and generally to demonstrate the capacity to become a thought leader in the nuclear field.
Interested candidates should send a resume or C.V., 3 references, and a letter outlining your career objectives, ideas for research and/or policy-relevant projects that you would like to pursue during the fellowship, and why you are interested in nuclear policy. The deadline for submission of application materials is January 31, 2011. The fellowship will begin on or about June 1, 2011, with some flexibility depending on the chosen candidate’s availability.

About the Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship
Established in 2009 by the Stanton Foundation, the purpose of the Nuclear Security Fellows Program is to stimulate the development of the next generation of thought leaders on nuclear security related topics by supporting interdisciplinary research that will advance policy-relevant understanding of the issues. The Stanton Foundation was created by Frank Stanton, former president of CBS, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest executives in the history of electronic communications. In 1954, Dwight Eisenhower appointed him to a committee convened to develop the first comprehensive plan for the survival of the U.S. following a nuclear attack. In this position, Stanton was responsible for developing plans for national and international communication in the aftermath of a nuclear incident. The Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship is a unique opportunity for a young scholar to explore how debates surrounding pressing questions of nuclear security play out within the U.S. and between it and other states.
About the Carnegie Endowment Nuclear Policy Program
The Carnegie Nuclear Policy Program is an internationally acclaimed source of expertise and policy thinking on nuclear industry, nonproliferation, security, and disarmament. Its multinational staff stays at the forefront of nuclear policy issues in the United States, Russia, China, Northeast Asia, South Asia, and the Middle East. As interest in nuclear power grows around the world, efforts to build a sustainable nuclear order increasingly will depend on engaging the nuclear industry, updating strategies of deterrence and security, and making progress towards the abolition of nuclear weapons. As nuclear challenges have broadened in scope and become more intertwined, so too has our research, analysis and policy development.
