| No Comments

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will host an information session on the Science and Technology Policy Fellowships. This meeting is scheduled for October 12 from 4-5pm in Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) 2-122. If you are interested in attending, please e-mail Robyn Kennedy by October 5th (kenne370@umn.edu) so enough refreshments and food can be provided.

Sage Russell, Deputy Director of the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships, is planning to visit campus on October 12 to talk about the Science & Technology Policy Fellowship Program at the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This is a post-graduate level fellowship opportunity.

This would be a great opportunity for graduate and postdoctoral students. Since 1973, more than 2,200 scientists and engineers have contributed their analytical skills to policymaking in Washington, DC, while learning about the role of science in the federal government. Career-enhancing opportunities are available in more than 30 Congressional offices and 15 federal agencies for science and engineering professionals at all career stages.

Applicants must be US citizens and hold a terminal degree (PhD, MD, DVM, etc.) in any scientific discipline, or a master's degree in engineering with three years of post-degree experience. Visit the AAAS Fellowships website for more information.
