CISAC Employment


The Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC), part of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI), is a multidisciplinary community dedicated to research and training in issues of international security. The Center brings together scholars, policymakers, area specialists, business people, and other experts to focus on a wide range of security questions of current importance.

CISAC grew out of Stanford University's pioneering commitment to explore concerns about the escalating arms competition that marked the decades following World War II. With the founding of the Arms Control and Disarmament Program in 1970, Stanford University became one of the first academic institutions in the nation to commit faculty and resources to the study of the critical issues surrounding the Cold War. Today it has expanded its mission to also focus on nuclear risk reduction, biosecurity and global health, cybersecurity, terrorism and homeland security, governnance, migration and transnational flows.
