The Physicists Coalition for Nuclear Threat Reduction, an initiative based at Princeton University’s Program on Science and Global Security and supported by the American Physical Society (APS), seeks to mobilize a national network of physicists interested in being informed advocates to policymakers and to the public on the nuclear weapon threat and opportunities for its reduction.
To support this effort, the Coalition invites applications for its Next-Generation Fellowship, which aims to make more diverse and strengthen participation of graduate students, postdocs and early-career physicists and engineers in advancing nuclear weapons threat reduction.
To strengthen diversity and the inclusion of many viewpoints in the nuclear weapons policy field, the Coalition encourages applicants of every gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and socioeconomic background. There are no citizenship requirements, but applicants must expect to reside in the US for the duration of the fellowship. There will be up to four Fellows for 2020-2021.
The one-year Coalition Fellowship offers Fellows opportunities including:
Travel and other expenses for participation in these activities will be funded by the Physicists Coalition. The Fellow’s salary is expected to be covered by their home institution.
