Research Fellow- AI Applications

To remain relevant – much less effective – the U.S. national security community must rapidly evaluate and translate new and emerging technologies, particularly in the field of AI, into novel capabilities that will be applied in the field. We are currently seeking a Research Fellow who aims to help decision makers in this task by separating real trends and strategic opportunities that have clear pathways to application from technological hope and hype.

Research Fellows will contribute to CSET’s mission of providing nonpartisan analysis to the policy community through data-driven research. They will create and communicate analytical products relevant to national security decision makers. Their work will accurately describe technical challenges and opportunities with regard to ethical, legal, strategic, fiscal, and/or organizational realities.
