The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is seeking nominations for its highly competitive Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship Program. The program, made possible by a generous grant from the Stanton Foundation, offers younger scholars studying nuclear security issues the opportunity to spend a period of twelve months at CFR’s offices in New York or Washington, DC, conducting policy-relevant research. I am hoping you can help us identify outstanding candidates for the fellowships.
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.
Deadline: February 15, 2010.
