From 2016 to 2017 she was American Council of Learned Societies Frederick Burkhardt Fellow and research fellow at the Security Studies Program at MIT. She holds a Ph.D. from Columbia University and was postdoctoral fellow at the University of Southern California and at Princeton University.

Stacie Goddard's research engages with core issues in international security, and in particular the study of the causes and conduct of war. Her book, "Indivisible Territory and the Politics of Legitimacy: Jerusalem and Northern Ireland" (Cambridge University Press, 2009), asks how territory becomes indivisible. Further main publications include "Rhetoric, Legitimation, and Grand Strategy" (edited with Ronald R. Krebs. Security Studies. 24 (1), Spring 2015) and "When Right Makes Might: Rising Powers and World Order" (Cornell Studies in Security Affairs, 2018).

She will also participate in the workshop "International Institutions in an Age of Global Power Shifts: Negotiating Change" on 27 and 28 June 2019.
