Position description

The Carnegie Endowment, a premier international affairs think tank with centers in Washington, Beijing, Beirut, Brussels, Moscow, and New Delhi, is seeking a senior fellow to join its Nuclear Policy Program.

The mission of the Nuclear Policy Program is to reduce the likelihood of nuclear weapons use by analyzing acute risks, informing debates on solutions, and engaging international actors to effect change. The program’s work spans issues of deterrence, arms control, disarmament, nonproliferation, nuclear security, and nuclear energy. 

This is a new, endowed position, funded by the Stanton Foundation. The Stanton Senior Fellow will have considerable latitude within the program framework to develop a work agenda of her or his choosing, including by working collaboratively with other scholars in the Nuclear Policy Program and across Carnegie’s global network. 

Preferred candidates will have an outstanding record of achievement in the nuclear field, whether in the government, policy research community, academia, or private sector. Additionally, candidates should have the drive to work independently, a demonstrated ability to develop and deliver innovative, policy-relevant research, a proven track record of policy impact, and a strong interest in working with a diverse range of international actors to promote practical solutions to real-world problems. Recent senior-level policy experience may substitute for recent published research. A PhD in a relevant discipline is preferred, but not required.

Located in Washington, DC. Please apply with your C.V. and brief statement of interest via the Carnegie Endowment website. 

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other protected group.
