Opportunity: Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellow
– July 18, 2014
The National Academies are pleased to announce the 2015 session of the Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program.
This 12-week program (Jan. 20 – Apr. 10, 2015) is designed to engage early career individuals in the processes that inform U.S. science and technology policy. Fellows obtain essential skills and knowledge needed to work in science and technology policy at the federal, state, or local level.
The Gulf Research Program will host a Christine Mirzayan Fellow, so we encourage you to spread the word among potential candidates. The Fellow will be part of a cohort of about two dozen other Fellows learning about the role of science in the federal government and will work directly with the Gulf Research Program and our Advisory Board.
We will be looking at candidates who are forward-thinking and cross-disciplinary. Graduate and professional school students and those who have completed graduate studies within the last five years may apply. Special consideration will be given to candidates who are from a Gulf state, studying at a Gulf state institution, or doing research relevant to the Gulf of Mexico.
Applications are due Sept. 1, 2014. The fellowship stipend is $8,500. To learn more or apply online, please visit: http://sites.nationalacademies.org/pga/policyfellows/.
