For more than 35 years, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science & Technology Policy Fellowships have provided scientists and engineers with a unique opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to national and international issues in the federal policy realm, while learning first-hand about establishing and implementing policy.
You’re invited to join AAAS Science & Technology Fellowships Program Manager, Julie Zimmerman, on August 19, 2011 from 10 to 11 a.m. in Mac Hall 2201 when she visits OHSU to host a discussion about these great opportunities.
Fellows select assignments in Congressional offices or federal agencies. This is a year-long opportunity, beginning September 1 and ending August 31. Most federal agencies offer Fellows the ability to renew for a second year. The stipend is approximately $74,000 to $97,000, depending on years of experience and previous salary. Applicants must hold a doctoral level degree (PhD, ScD, MD, DVM, etc.) or a Master’s degree in engineering plus 3 years of post-degree professional experience. Federal employees are not eligible and U.S. citizenship is required. Applications for the fellowships are due December 5, 2011.
