3-month fellowship for historians studying the IAEA

Fellowship for studying the IAEA

“The IAEA History Research Project in Vienna, a partner of the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project, is pleased to announce a 3-month research fellowship to a scholar studying the history of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The IAEA was established in 1957 and is the oldest and largest international organization in Austria. It is the key verification institution in the global nonproliferation regime.

The fellowship, made possible by a generous grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, will provide a unique opportunity to explore various archival resources in and around Vienna, including the IAEA Archives, and also to interact with personalities and experts associated with the IAEA in Vienna.


One research fellowship of three months is available. The fellowship is open to doctoral candidates working on the history of the IAEA. However, applications from candidates who have recently completed their PhD dissertation will also be considered. The duration of the fellowship will be three months, starting no later than August 2015

Fellowship Details

The value of the fellowship will be 6,000 €. The successful applicant will be considered an independent researcher and therefore will not be eligible for employment benefits, including health insurance. The successful applicant will be responsible for obtaining an appropriate Austrian visa.

Fellows are expected to share the documentary, archival, and other relevant resources they collect during the course of their fellowship with the IAEA History Research Project. Moreover, in return for the fellowship, the research fellow is asked to provide the IAEA History Research Project with a paper which presents the research findings and may be published as a journal article.

How to Apply

The deadline for applications is 20 February 2015. Interested candidates must submit a cover letter, a CV, one letter of recommendation, and a research proposal (maximum 1,000 words) outlining the work they propose to conduct, and the envisaged outcomes.

Please direct all application materials and inquiries to Dr. Elisabeth Röhrlich ”

Nork Cyberterror Power

Apparently I have been wrong.

For some time I have been downplaying the dangers posed by both sabre-rattling from the North Koreans and those from cyber”terrorism”. After recent events I feel that I should apologize to my students and colleagues. I lumped both of these into a larger pool of inflated threats that were not of great significance to real questions of international power.  It appears that I was wrong. There seems to be serious power in cyber attacks from North Korea:

These hackers have made me want to see James Franco in a movie. YOU MONSTERS!


What happened? Some hackers attacked Sony. It may be Norks spurred on because of the slight to the dear leader in a stoner comedy. Some of the threats sound like normal Nork sabre-rattling. (I can’t really do justice to this. Check ArmsControlWonk on twitter for the good stuff). Then Sony pulled the film from theatres.

Alex Proud has a nice rundown here on why we should care.
