Congressional Fellows are key brokers of scientific knowledge for policy-makers and also learn the intricate process of developing public policy and how the legislative process works, which they can share with their science colleagues.
The successful candidate will spend 12 months (starting September) in Washington, D.C., working as a staff member in the office of a member of Congress or congressional committee. Fellows make practical contributions to the effective and timely use of geoscientific knowledge on issues relating to the environment, resources, natural hazards, and federal science policy.
Applications typically close in January.
