Open Positions

Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship

We are accepting applications for our competitive 2-year Stanton Fellowship in Nuclear Science and Security. The fellowship is given annually and is open to postdoctoral scholars and tenure-track faculty working at the intersection of technology and nuclear security. The fellowships will be awarded on the basis of academic and professional accomplishment, promise, and on the merits of the specific research project proposed. Fellows are expected to take a leadership role in the proposed research, and produce at least one publishable academic paper while in residence. The fellows will be integrated members of the LNSP research team, and are encouraged to work collaboratively with other research faculty in the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering and the MIT Security Studies Program.

For more information, qualification requirements, and application instructions, please see the Stanton Fellowship page.


We are always looking for motivated, capable individuals to join in existing research efforts.

Requirements: strong computational, experimental, and analytical chops, as well as a deep interest in nuclear security and policy. Preferably a background in nuclear/particle physics, nuclear engineering, applied mathematics and related fields. If you feel you have it all, please send us the following:

  • A brief cover letter (e.g. the email body)
  • CV with a list of publications
  • Names of 3 references.


For MIT graduate and undergrad students, please send a brief CV delineating your coursework, academic background, and technical skills.
