Research Topics

CISAC’s Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship Program aims 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. This fellowship offers engineers, scientists, and social scientists an opportunity to conduct science- or social science-based research on issues related to nuclear security. Fellows are expected to produce a research product (e.g., dissertation chapters, draft articles, a book manuscript) by the end of their fellowship year. Suitable topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Nuclear proliferation and non-proliferation
  • Nuclear weapons, doctrine and policy planning
  • Nuclear energy and its consequences
  • Nuclear terrorism


Proposed research must be consistent with the fellowship mission as described above. Additionally, it must be plausible that the products of the research will have an impact on policy makers. Theory must illuminate and advance policy choices. Fellowships are available to scholars with PhD or equivalent degrees and junior faculty from the United States and abroad. PhD candidates who have made substantial progress toward the completion of their dissertation may be considered if dissertation topic is in nuclear security. All applicants, including those not seeking financial assistance, must submit complete applications.
