If you are a scientist interested in the intersection of science, policy and international affairs, AIP encourages you to apply for the AIP 2021-22 State Department fellowship.
The application deadline is October 15, 2020.
This one-year fellowship is a unique opportunity for a scientist to contribute scientific and technical expertise to the Department and raise awareness of the value of scientific input. In turn, scientists broaden their experience by interacting with policymakers in the federal government and learning about the foreign policy process.
Virtual fellowships are on-going for current fellows, logistics for the 2021-22 term are still to be determined.
The fellowship includes a $80,000 annualized stipend, health insurance reimbursement and a professional development allotment.
Qualified scientists at any stage of their career are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, have a PhD in physics or a closely related field, be members of one or more of AIP’s Member Societies and be eligible to receive an appropriate security clearance prior to starting the fellowship.
For information on AIP’s Fellowship program qualifications and application instructions, please visit our website - https://www.aip.org/policy/fellowships/sdf.
Final interviews will take place early in 2021 and the 12-month Fellowship term will begin in the Fall of 2021.
Application components include a letter of intent, resume and three letters of recommendation. More information and a link to our online application portal are available at the website. All application materials must be submitted via our on-line application portal and must be received by the OCTOBER 15TH deadline.
