Sloan Foundation, the American Mathematical Society (AMS), along with the American Statistical Association (ASA), Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS), Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) will sponsor AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellows in the federal government this year.

Fellows will serve one year in a federal agency or on the staff of a Congress member or on a congressional committee beginning in September 2020, assisting in legislative and policy areas that require scientific and technical input.

Eligible applicants are invited to apply for the 2020-21 AMS/ASA/ACM/IMS/MAA/SIAM Science & Technology Policy Fellowships. Individuals who are U.S. citizens, have a Ph.D. in mathematics, statistics, data science or a closely related field should  APPLY HERE.

Applications are due by February 1, 2020 and require a candidate statement, biographical sketch, and three letters of reference.

The selection committee will choose the Fellows. The evaluation criteria are available here.

Since 1973, the AAAS Science and Technology Fellowships program has connected science with policy, fostering a network of science and engineering leaders who understand government and policy-making and are prepared to develop and execute solutions to address societal challenges.  AAAS places about 300 people each year through this program.
