The Center for International Security and Cooperation Invites Applications for its 2012-2013 Fellowship Programs
The Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) at Stanford University is an interdisciplinary community dedicated to producing policy-relevant scholarly research on issues in international security, to teaching and training the next generation of security specialists, and to influencing policymaking in international security. The center, a part of Stanford's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, serves as a forum for scholars, scientists, and policy practitioners to conduct research and writing in a collegial and collaborative environment and to explore innovative solutions to some of the most complex problems in assuring peace and international security.
We invite applications for our fellowship programs from scholars in the social sciences and humanities and the natural sciences and engineering, as well as from legal scholars and professionals.
In the social sciences and humanities, we seek pre- and post-doctoral scholars, junior faculty, policy practitioners, and, in special cases, mid-career professionals in journalism, the military, government, or international organizations. In collaboration with the Stanford Law School, we also offer two research fellowships on law and international security. This program is open to law students, recent law school graduates, and pre- and post-doctoral scholars and professionals from a variety of disciplines.
In the natural sciences and engineering, we seek scholars in those and related fields who are pursuing significant science-based research and are interested in using their technical knowledge to do policy-relevant research in international security. CISAC welcomes applicants from academia, the public and private sector, national laboratories, and the military, either from the U.S. or abroad. One of these fellowships is the William J. Perry Fellowship, which honors the former secretary of defense. His career is a model for the scientifically informed, pragmatic problem-solving in public policy that we value at CISAC.
Topics of interest for our fellows may include nuclear weapons proliferation and risk, nuclear energy, war and civil conflict, global governance, migration and transnational flows, public health and the environment, cyber and biosecurity, international norms and ethics, and insurgency and homeland security. We welcome applicants conducting research in these areas, broadly defined, and at their intersections. Pre- and post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty with an interest in nuclear issues are also invited to apply for a Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship.
For all of our fellows we offer the opportunity to conduct research at one of the world's foremost universities, within an intellectual community dedicated to innovative, rigorous, policy-relevant scholarship.
To apply for a fellowship, visit http://www.cisac.stanford.edu/fellowships  Applications are due Feb. 1,
2012.
