Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs Offers Fellowships

The Project on Managing the Atom at Harvard’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs offers fellowships for pre- and post-doctoral scholars, and mid-career professionals, during the 2020-2021 academic year. Post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty members may also apply for Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowships at the Belfer Center. The online application for 2020-2021 fellowships opens on December 18, and the application deadline is January 15, 2020. All recommendation letters will be due on February 3, 2020. Decisions will be announced by March 30, 2020.

Fellows are expected to pursue research with a nuclear policy focus that relates to the ongoing work of the MTA project. Priority will be given to applicants pursuing research on: reducing the risk of nuclear or radiological terrorism; stopping the spread of nuclear weapons; reducing the dangers of existing nuclear stockpiles through arms control or other means; and lowering safety, security, proliferation, and other risks associated with the growth of civilian nuclear power. Researchers working on any of the above issues in a regional context are particularly encouraged to apply. Also encouraged are proposals examining steps that lay the foundations for the long-term prohibition of nuclear arsenals or steps that improve verification of nonproliferation or disarmament.
