Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship Program


The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) will award up to three fellowships in 2010. Candidates may be junior (non-tenured) faculty, post-doctoral fellows, or pre-doctoral candidates from any discipline who are working on a nuclear security related issue. The fellowships will be awarded on the basis of academic and professional accomplishments and promise, and on the merits of the specific research projects proposed. The fellows could work on a wide range of issues, including nuclear terrorism, nuclear proliferation, nuclear weapons, nuclear force posture, and, as it relates to nuclear security, nuclear energy.

Fellows may spend their fellowship year at either CFR's offices in New York or Washington, DC. It is expected that fellows will begin their fellowship year in summer or fall 2010. While in residence at CFR, fellows will be expected to lead a project of their own design, conduct original research, and write at least one policy relevant document.

The deadline for receiving all application materials for the Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship Program is February 15, 2010. Interested candidates must submit a cover letter, a CV, and a proposal (maximum 1,000 words in length) outlining the work they propose to conduct.
