Professor Dominic Johnson is the Alastair Buchan Chair in the Department of Politics and International Relations, where he teaches the university's course on Strategic Studies. He is a fellow of St. Antony's College. Before coming to Oxford, Professor Johnson held positions at Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, and Edinburgh.

Professor Johnson received a DPhil from Oxford University in evolutionary biology, and a PhD from Geneva University in political science. Drawing on both disciplines, he is interested in how new research on evolution, biology and human nature is challenging theories of international relations, competition, and conflict. His current research is on the role of religion, threat, Lanchester's laws of combat, and the costs of making mistakes in war. He is a member of the Natural Security project, which uses insights from the ubiquitous competition and conflict in nature to develop more adaptive strategies to contemporary security threats.
