Resident Fellowship in Ethics

Vice Admiral James B. Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership

U.S. Naval Academy


The U.S. Naval Academy’s Stockdale Center invites applications for its annual Resident Fellowship Program for academic year 2021-2022.


The Secretary of the Navy and the Superintendent of the Naval Academy established the Center in 1998 to be a thought leader in the field of military ethics and leadership and serve the Naval Academy, the Naval Service and national institutions of influence. 


Minimum qualifications: dissertation phase of a Ph.D. program in a humanities or social science area and U.S. citizenship.  Ideal candidates will be published Ph.D. holders with university teaching experience in philosophy, political theory, international relations, public policy or history.  We are especially interested in philosophy or political science Ph.D.s familiar with the ethics of using artificial intelligence in military operations and planning.


The Stockdale Center anticipates selecting up to four residential fellows, whose focus will be a weekly seminar devoted to defense-related ethics topics.  Fellows will also have the opportunity to conduct additional research projects in cooperation with the Naval Academy’s civilian and military faculty members.


Application review will begin January 18, 2021.  Click here to be directed to the full advertisement on the United States Naval Academy Human Resources website, which includes application instructions:
