The Security Studies Program in the Center for International Studies at MIT is soliciting applications for a two-year residential fellowship for scholars of post-Cold War Russian foreign and national security policy. We interpret this broadly, to include any aspect of Russia’s foreign relations including economic, political, military, or intelligence efforts. The fellow will be expected to participate fully in the activities of the Security Studies Program, and to interact intensively with faculty, students, and other fellows. Regular publication and other forms of outreach are central to the position. Applicants from the scholarly or policy communities are welcome. There is some flexibility about career phase and seniority. Academics must, however, have their doctoral degree in hand. Others should demonstrate several years of practical and analytic experience.

Applications should include a current CV, a writing sample, and a brief discussion of the applicant’s planned research for the fellowship period. We will begin reviewing applications on September 1, 2022. There is flexibility on starting dates, which could be as early as January 1, 2023. Please send applications to
