STANTON FELLOW IN NUCLEAR SECURITY, Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE), to work on research projects at the intersection of technology and nuclear security policy. Fellows may join an existing project or propose their own. Projects should take advantage of faculty expertise in NSE. Collaboration with members of the MIT Security Studies Program is encouraged. Fellows are required to produce an original, policy-relevant paper before the conclusion of the fellowship, preferably a publication in an academic journal. Fellows are also required to present their work at the annual Stanton Nuclear Security Seminar hosted by the Stanton Foundation.
REQUIRED: a Ph.D. in a relevant technical field (e.g., nuclear engineering, physics, nuclear chemistry, etc.) or technical expertise in nuclear-related sciences and an advanced degree in a related policy area by the inception of the fellowship. Candidates who lack an advanced degree in nuclear engineering are welcome to apply. A variety of other professional experiences or educational backgrounds (e.g., spanning STEM and/or security policy) may provide appropriate technical background sufficient to ensure the success of research. The position is ideal for someone seeking to develop a career in the field of nuclear security broadly. Job #22060 Fellows will receive a stipend of $80,000/year. The fellowship is awarded for one year with an opportunity for one year of renewal. Appointments will typically follow the academic year. Applications received by March 15, 2023, will be considered for fellowships in the 2023-2024 academic year beginning September 2023. 11/1/22
