The Partnership for Global Security (PGS) is one of the global leaders in designing and generating support for the improvement of the global nuclear security and governance system. For over 17 years, PGS has been evaluating policy needs, developing effective, implementable responses, and driving demonstrable results. Its activities, analyses, and issue framing have consistently shaped the viewpoints of policy makers, international experts, and the media.
Its focus on strategic thinking about both policy needs and a deep understanding of how to package timely, authoritative, and actionable policy proposals for policymakers has led to new international security programs and millions of dollars in new funding for nuclear security. PGS has a unique perspective on the nuclear security challenge and how to address it. Its track record is unparalleled in creating broad and integrated networks, including private and public partnerships, to address vital transnational issues. PGS is constantly evaluating how the convergence of security, technological, and economic issues is shaping the 21st century’s global nuclear challenges. PGS addresses the challenges in this field with an approach that fuses an understanding of technology, geopolitics, economics, international law and social dynamics.
The responsibilities of a Scoville Fellow working at PGS would be to conduct original research and produce reports (for both internal and external consumption) primarily focused on nuclear security, nuclear energy, and transnational governance challenges. Additionally, the nexus of climate change, nuclear energy, global security, and nuclear security governance policies are essential themes of PGS’ core research. The Scoville Fellow would attend relevant meetings, conferences, and congressional hearings, and prepare summaries of these events. Lastly, the fellow would assist the PGS president and Washington Office staff in their research on major nuclear security policy and strategy issues.
