January 3, 2019

Through assignments in the US federal government in Washington, DC, AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellowships allow researchers to bring their technical skills to bear on societal change.

The ASA/ACM/AMS/IMS/MAA/SIAM 2019–2020 Fellowships are seeking candidates in data science wishing to use their expertise in areas such as machine learning, data visualization, and causal inference to meet legislative and policymaking challenges. Fellows serve one year in a US federal agency or on the staff of a senator, representative, or congressional committee beginning September 2019.  The fellowships are an opportunity to learn about the executive and legislative processes and lend statistical and scientific expertise to public policy issues.

Individuals who are US citizens and have a PhD in computing science, statistics, data science, mathematics, or a closely related field are encouraged to apply. Candidates are sought who represent the diversity of our society. Applications are due by January 15, and require a candidate statement, biographical sketch, and three letters of reference.
