Research Topics

CISAC offers pre and postdoctoral and professional fellowships for concentrated study in a multidisciplinary environment. Fellows spend the academic year at Stanford University, where they participate in seminars, and interact with each other as well as faculty and
researchers. They are expected to produce a research product (e.g., dissertation chapters, draft articles, a book manuscript). The Center considers applicants working within a broad range of topics related to peace and international security. Suitable topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • transnational processes affecting conflict and human security
  • the United Nations and global governance
  • causes and prevention of conflict
  • determinants of post-war settlements
  • the interaction of science, politics and policy
  • nuclear energy and nuclear nonproliferation
  • proliferation and nonproliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapon
  • terrorism and counter-terrorism
  • the politics of homeland security
  • the determinants of foreign and military policy within and across states and regions


Fellowships are available to PhD candidates who have made substantial progress toward the completion of their dissertation and to scholars with PhD or equivalent degrees from the United States and abroad. The Center invites applications from a variety of areas of expertise, including anthropology, economics, history, law, political science, sociology, medicine, and the natural and physical sciences. The Center also seeks applications from professionals, such as military officers or civilian members of the United States government, members of military or diplomatic services from other countries, and journalists interested in international security issues.

Predoctoral fellows receive stipends comparable to those awarded by the Stanford Graduate Fellowships program and postdoctoral fellows receive stipends determined on a case-by-case basis. Professional stipends are commensurate with experience. Health care and other benefits are also provided as required by Stanford University for both pre and postdoctoral fellows
