The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), in support of the U.S. Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration’s Next Generation Safeguards Initiative, are pleased to announce an intensive one-week course on international nuclear safeguards policy to be held at the Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS) on 2-6 June, 2014. The course will provide background knowledge and introduce tools needed for careers in nuclear safeguards with an emphasis on policy and information analysis.
This course will be facilitated by senior Monterey Institute staff and other nonproliferation policy analysts from the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies with presentations by experts from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory and other leading nonproliferation and safeguards specialists.
Applicants must be a currently enrolled graduate student or a young professional in, or intending to enter, the nuclear nonproliferation field. We are especially interested in applicants who demonstrate how a deeper understanding of international safeguards policy will aid their professional pursuits.
The course is tuition free for selected participants and a few small stipends may be available to non-local students to partially offset transportation and housing costs. Enrollment and the number of stipends are limited.
Application Deadline: March 7, 2014
