Jeffrey LewisStanton Fellowships

For regular readers who also happen to be pre-doctoral or post-doctoral acadmics, the Stanton Foundation has funded a series of fellowships in nuclear security. Here is a list of participating institutions:

Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA

✽ Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Washington, DC

Center for Security and International Cooperation Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA

Council of Foreign Relations, New York, NY

Institute for International and Strategic Studies, London, UK

RAND, Santa Monica, CA/Pittsburgh, PA/Washington, DC

(For reasons that totally baffle me, the Carnegie Endowment has not posted its announcement yet.)

Be mindful: the due dates, application materials and salary vary from one place to the next, sometimes greatly. (The salary range, for example, runs from the Harvard discount of $20,000 over ten months for a pre-doctoral fellow up to $100,000 over a full year for post-docs at some other institutions. In fairness, academic institutions like Harvard and Stanford do have equity issues that need to be respected.)

As a colleague at one of the institutions noted, “It’s a great opportunity for young academics, and pretty much everyone who’d be of interest probably reads the blog.”

Well, there you go, stick that on your curriculum vitae!

    Pray tell, what does “In fairness, academic institutions like Harvard and Stanford do have equity issues that need to be respected.” mean? That it costs more to be able to put Stanford or Harvard on your CV so you should be more willing to live like a pauper for a year? Or that Harvard and Stanford are entitled to skim more off the top?
