Post Doc position with the Center for Global Security Research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Please pass along this link to anyone who may be interested or any colleagues that may know strong candidates. Here’s a short description:
Long-term competition among the major powers has emerged as a major feature of the 21st century security environment. To prevail in this competition, the United States has set out a strategy to out-think, out-partner, and out-innovate its rivals. It is also making significant investments in the capabilities necessary to negate coercion by these rivals and to regain a technically advantageous position. But U.S. rivals are not standing still, and they too are making significant investments to shift the balance of influence in their direction. Thus, the unfolding competition brings with it potential benefits, significant risks, and a great deal of uncertainty. The United States and its allies need some metric by which to gauge the balance of strategic influence in a multipolar world marked by rising military competition in an all-domain framework. The net assessment methodology pioneered in the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) under the leadership of Andrew Marshall provides an excellent framework for understanding the means and ends of multidomain strategic competition in a 21st century context. This CGSR fellowship, the result of a partnership between LLNL and the Office of Secretary of Defense, was created to advance thinking about those means and ends and the necessary metrics and to further develop relevant communities of interest. This position is in the Center for Global Security Research (CGSR).
