The International Security Program is a  multidisciplinary research group  that develops and trains new talent in security studies by hosting pre- and postdoctoral research fellows. ISP seeks applications from political scientists, historians, lawyers, economists, those in the natural sciences, and others of diverse disciplinary backgrounds. ISP also encourages applications from women, minorities, and citizens of all countries. The International Security Program offers fellowships in the following research areas: U.S. defense and foreign policy; grand strategy; diplomacy; nuclear, chemical, and biological–weapons proliferation; managing nuclear technology and materials; chemical and biological weapons proliferation, control, and countermeasures; terrorism; regional security, internal and ethnic conflict; and international relations theory. Applicants whose proposed research focuses on cybersecurity issues, should apply to the Cyber Security Project's fellowship instead.
