Postdoctoral Scholar, Technology and International Security (IGCC)

University of California San Diego

The University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC), together with the UC Office of the President and 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), are pleased to invite applications for up to six (6) postdoctoral fellowship positions 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.

The fellowship program will be based in Washington, D.C. for a 24-month term in line with the 2024-25 and 2025-26 academic years. Applicants who can participate for only 12-months in line with the 2024-25 academic year should also apply. Eligible applicants should expect to receive a Ph.D. degree by September 1, 2024.

All Fellows are expected to be in residence at the University of California Washington, D.C. Center for the duration of the fellowship. Fellows are expected to dedicate the majority of their time to research and complete a book, monograph, or other significant publication during their period of residence. Fellows are also expected to plan and regularly participate in all weekly seminars, research colloquia, and occasional travel.

Competitive salary with benefits and a modest research/travel budget.

A Ph.D. in social sciences, humanities, physical or natural sciences, engineering or computer sciences, and other technical and non-technical fields is required.

Applications received by December 4, 2023 will be given full consideration.
