Faculty Positions, Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering,
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

The Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, invites applications for two faculty positions starting September 2016 or thereafter. Appointments will be at the assistant or untenured associate professor level. In special cases, a senior faculty appointment may be possible.

The Department is a world leader in the generation, control and application of nuclear reactions and radiation for the benefit of society and the environment. Its faculty educate and conduct research in fields from fundamental nuclear science to practical applications of nuclear technology in energy, security and other fields. We are seeking exceptional candidates broadly engaged in either of these areas. All candidates who demonstrate excellence in the multidisciplinary landscape of the department’s research and education areas will be considered. These areas include, but are not limited to: advanced modeling, simulation, and theory of complex nuclear systems; integrated design for nuclear fission energy systems; advanced thermal hydraulics; the nuclear fuel cycle; radiation sources and technology; plasma physics and fusion engineering; materials for extreme environments; and quantum engineering and control. The two research areas of emphasis for current candidates are fission energy and nuclear security technology. [See http://web.mit.edu/nse/]. 

Applicants must have a doctorate in a relevant engineering or scientific field by the beginning of employment, and must have demonstrated excellence in research and scholarship in a relevant technical field. We welcome applications from a wide range of related disciplines, including physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanical engineering, computational science and engineering, and environmental engineering. However, a commitment to excel in teaching in one of the core fields of nuclear science and engineering is essential. Faculty duties will include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, research, and supervision of graduate students. 

Applications are being accepted electronically at http://nse-search.mit.edu/. Each application must include: a curriculum vitae, the names and addresses of three or more references, a two-page strategic statement of research interests, a one-page statement of teaching interests, and electronic copies of no more than three representative publications. Each candidate must also arrange for three or more reference letters to be uploaded electronically. 

Recognizing MIT’s strong commitment to diversity in education, research and practice, minorities and women are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications received before 1/31/2016 will be given priority.

MIT is an equal opportunity/ affirmative action employer.

Policy Program Associate - Nuclear Security, The Stanley Foundation

Position Overview:
The Stanley Foundation seeks a program associate to join its Policy Programming Department. The chosen candidate will work with the foundation’s policy programming team and other staff to support the planning, implementation, and assessment of the impact of the foundation’s nuclear security policy programming in pursuit of our mission, vision, and organizational goals. The Stanley Foundation’s nuclear security programming currently focuses on the prevention of nuclear and radiological terrorism and is driven by defined policy goals. Program associates are key team players working in collaboration with the Stanley Foundation’s strong program delivery team.

The ideal candidate will have: 
• An interest in gaining exposure to international policy, key players, and networks. 
• The ability to support the conceptualization and implementation of programming activities that will advance the foundation’s policy change goals.

About the Stanley Foundation:
The Stanley Foundation advances multilateral action to create fair, just, and lasting solutions to critical issues of peace and security. Our work is built on a belief that greater international cooperation will improve global governance and enhance global citizenship. We value our Midwestern roots and family heritage as well as our role as a nonpartisan, private operating foundation. We do not make grants but rather carry out our own programming. Foundation policy programming relies heavily on policy dialogues (involving U.S. and foreign government officials, influential scholars, journalists, and nongovernmental experts). It also includes policy analysis and a wide variety of communication and advocacy activities to develop and build support for specific policy initiatives. Much of our programming activity is done collaboratively. More about the foundation and our work can be found at www.stanleyfoundation.org.

Full Position Description:
The policy program associate will contribute to the foundation’s nuclear security policy work by supporting the conceptualization and implementation of programming activities to achieve the foundation’s policy change goals. The program associate will work in close collaboration with the program officer responsible for nuclear security programming and the director of policy programming strategy to develop and implement the foundation’s strategy around the nuclear security issue area and evaluate the relative success of its work. The program associate will also work in collaboration with all departments in the Stanley Foundation to deliver high impact programming in the field of nuclear security policy.

Key Responsibilities:
• Program Support: The program associate will support the program officer, working across foundation departments and with other organizations, to implement programming activities that will drive policy progress in targeted areas. The program associate may be required to attend events annually, run by the Stanley Foundation, its partners, or others. The program associate will be responsible for:

o Keeping the program officer and others well informed of developments and progress on assigned activities.
o Substantive research in support of programming efforts and commissioned analysis.
o On-site rapporteuring and writing of first drafts of policy dialogue publications.
o Liaising with the Communications Department and others on publications in the editorial process and production associated with dialogue products.
o Liasing with operations when organizing events, including managing invitation lists and meeting agreed-on schedules and deadlines.

• Learning: The program associate will participate in the learning process in the issue area as it relates to the foundation’s role in future policy efforts. This includes working with the program officer to incorporate lessons learned from activity-specific evaluations as well as adjusting programming to reflect feedback from midterm and end-of-cycle evaluations. As a member of the foundation’s Policy Programming Department, the program associate will build subject matter expertise. This will include presence at numerous events annually, run by the Stanley Foundation, its partners, or others.
• Networking and Relationship Cultivation: Because collaboration with other organizations is a key element of the Stanley Foundation’s work, the program associate will assist the program officer with networking and maintaining strong and supportive ties with key organizational partners. As a member of an institution with a strong vision for positive change, the program associate will display the determination and excitement of the mission through daily engaged and positive relationships with peers in and beyond the organization.
• Team Contribution: As a member of the policy programming team, the program associate will contribute to cross-team learning for assessing broader organizational impact. The program associate will contribute to all internal reporting mechanisms and procedures and will utilize excellent communication and collaboration skills as a member of the Stanley Foundation team.

Qualifications:
The ideal candidate will demonstrate an interest in international affairs, particularly subject areas related to nuclear security. In addition, a strong candidate should possess:

• International study/travel/living experience.
• Facilitation skills.

The program associate reports to the program officer responsible for nuclear security programming. The position requires frequent travel. Applicants must be legally authorized to work in the United States. The Stanley Foundation offers competitive salaries and a full benefits package.

Location:
This position is located at the foundation headquarters in Muscatine, Iowa, a community of 23,000 people on the Mississippi River.
