The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine are now accepting applications for the 2016 session of the Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program. This 12-week program (January 19 - April 9, 2016) 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 levels.
The Gulf Research Program will host a Christine Mirzayan fellow during the 2016 session. This fellow will join a cohort of about two dozen other fellows learning about the role of science in the federal government while working directly with Gulf Research Program staff 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. We are particularly interested in candidates whose graduate work is relevant to the Gulf of Mexico and the mission and goals of the Gulf Research Program.
