The Belfer Center's International Security Program (ISP) has been invited to participate in a new nuclear security fellowship program funded by the Stanton Foundation. These fellowships are for predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars and junior faculty. The purpose of the fellowships is to stimulate the development of the next generation of thought leaders in nuclear security by supporting research that will advance policy-relevant understanding of the issues. Stanton Nuclear Security Fellows will be joint International Security Program/Project on Managing the Atom (MTA) research fellows. All ISP/MTA applicants with a nuclear focus will be considered for the Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship.

Fellows are expected to produce a written product at the end of the fellowship (e.g. an article, report, or book). Suitable topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Nuclear terrorism
  • Nuclear proliferation
  • Nuclear weapons
  • Nuclear force posture
  • Nuclear energy as it relates to nuclear security
