Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace’s Nuclear Policy Program is accepting applications for the Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship Program. Carnegie will award one fellowship for the 2014-2015 year.
The objective of the Stanton Fellowship is to enhance and develop the Fellow's capacity to become a leader in policy-relevant research in the areas of nuclear deterrence, disarmament, nonproliferation, or energy. The Fellow will be based at Carnegie’s office in Washington, DC, with access to colleagues in Beijing, Beirut, Brussels, and Moscow. Over the course of their time at Carnegie, the Fellow will have the opportunity and resources to deepen their understanding of how nuclear policies are developed and contested within the U.S. and between it and other states. 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 apply below with a resume or C.V., three references, and a cover letter outlining your career objectives, proposals for research and/or policy-relevant projects to pursue during the fellowship, and why you are interested in nuclear policy. The fellowship will begin on or about June 1, 2014, with flexibility depending on the chosen candidate’s availability.
Carnegie welcomes applicants from around the world and will sponsor visa applications. Candidates are required to have a Ph.D., completed substantial progress toward a Ph.D., or have obtained a law degree.
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.
