Postdoctoral Fellowship in Technology and International Security

Technology has always played a central role in international security. Technology shapes the ways states fight during wartime and compete during peacetime. Today, significant advancements in nuclear technology, autonomous weapons, artificial intelligence, remote sensing, cyber technology, hypersonic vehicles, additive manufacturing, stealth, precision guidance, and other areas have contributed to a widespread sense that the world is again on the precipice of a new technological era. We seek applicants whose research generates new theoretical and empirical insights into the relationship between technology, national security, and the global security environment.

This Postdoctoral Fellowship in Technology and International Security supports postdoctoral fellows whose research generates new theoretical and empirical insights into the relationship between technology, national security, and the global security environment. The program is supported by IGCC, together with the UC-managed National Laboratories: the Center for Global Security Research at the Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and the National Security and International Studies Office at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).

The joint program is directed by Prof. Neil Narang, Research Director at the Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation and Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of California – Santa Barbara. If you have questions, please direct them to Marie Thiveos Stewart (mthiveos@ucsd.edu).
