Interested in opportunities at the intersection of science & policy? Want to gain first-hand experience in establishing and implementing science policy?
For more than 40 years, scientists and engineers have applied their knowledge and technical expertise to policy-making while developing valuable career-enhancing skills in the process. The AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships are a unique public service and professional development opportunity exploring the intersection of science and policy. Fellows bring a common interest in learning about science policy and a willingness to apply their training in new arenas. Fellows serve in yearlong assignments in the executive, judicial and legislative branches of government in the Washington, D.C. region.
Join us on Thursday, February 13 to hear from current fellow Ryan Bixenmann, PhD, 2013-14 Executive Branch Fellow, National Science Foundation, and Olga Francois, Senior Project Director, AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships and learn more about the program. This session will take place on Thursday, February 13 from 5-6pm in the Searle Seminar Room, First Floor of the Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Building (303 E. Superior), Chicago campus. Postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and faculty are welcome to attend; food will be served. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
