Applications Now Open for the 2019 Bahcall Public Policy Fellowship

Monday, December 31, 2018 - 10:39

Do you love writing, giving talks, and meeting new people? Have you volunteered on student or postdoc governance groups? Do you have an odd affection for committee meetings? Do you follow the @AAS_Policy Twitter feed and/or policy blog? Are you interested in a career in science policy? Then you are an excellent candidate to be the next John N. Bahcall Public Policy Fellow here at the AAS! It is certain to be a challenging and exciting time to advocate for science in Washington.

While we are sad to see current Bahcall Fellow Ashlee Wilkins's time with us coming to an end, we are excited to begin the search for the next Fellow! Former Bahcall Fellows have all gone on to interesting and rewarding positions in advocacy and/or public policy after leaving the AAS. The normal fellowship term is one year (September to September), renewable for an additional year, though we may accelerate the process in 2019 if Ashlee moves on before September.

Please see the post on the AAS Job Register and our online application form for additional details, and please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. Applications are due 1 March 2019.
