Are you midcareer or a faculty member seeking a sabbatical or yearlong fellowship to develop new research projects and apply mature scholarship to real-world policy problems? Looking to grow your career and gain hands-on policy experience? 

The AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) is the premier opportunity for outstanding scientists and engineers to learn first-hand about policymaking while using their knowledge and analytical skills to address today’s most pressing societal challenges. STPF seeks experienced STEM professionals for the Judicial Branch Fellowship as well as fellowships in the executive and legislative branches. 

STPF will host a live video chat on August 31, 2017, 2:00 p.m. ET with judicial fellows to discuss how the fellowship transformed their career. Hear STPF fellows share why mid- to later-career was the right time to apply, and how they applied their research and training to federal policy.  

Apply today! The deadline is November 1.

The AAAS S&T Policy Fellowships are open to U.S. citizens who hold doctoral level degrees in any of the following:

  • Medical and Health sciences.
  • Biological, Physical or Earth sciences.
  • Social and Behavioral sciences.
  • Computational sciences and Mathematics.
  • Engineering disciplines (applicants with an M.S. in engineering and three years of professional experience also qualify).

Before the chat, read an overview of STPF program to provide more time to answer specific questions relevant to you.
