Dr. Robert Schub is an assistant professor of Political Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He researches international security and U.S foreign policy with emphases on leaders, advisers, uncertainty, and the costs of war. Some of this work examines how leaders and their advisers assess international adversaries and when shortcomings in advisory processes contribute to the outbreak of military conflict. Professor Schub's research has been published in several outlets, including International Studies Quarterly and the Journal of Conflict Resolution.
Prior to joining the faculty at UNL, Professor Schub held research fellowships at Nuffield College and the Rothermere American Institute at the University of Oxford and at the Belfer Center at Harvard Kennedy School. He received his Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University in 2016.
