Job opportunities in the science and technology policy field may be limited. The Center provides the following resources to aid job seekers in their quest:
- Each issue of Ogmius includes job listings.
- The Center’s weblog, Prometheus, has a job announcement section.
- The Center’s website includes links to pages with Science and Technology Policy jobs, internships, fellowships, etc.
The Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program
The Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program of the National Academies is designed to engage graduate science, engineering, medical, veterinary, business, and law students in the analysis that informs the creation of science and technology policy and to familiarize them with the interactions of science, technology, and government. As a result, students develop essential skills different from those attained in academia and make the transition from being a graduate student to a professional. The deadline for receipt of materials is March 1 for the June program; and June 1 for the September program. For more information visit the fellowship website.
The Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes (CSPO) at Arizona State University (ASU) seeks a Post-doctoral Research Associate and a Graduate Research Assistant to assist with an NSF-sponsored 5-year joint project with the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research at the University of Colorado. The project, called Science Policy Assessment and Research on Climate (SPARC), will investigate the relation between science policy and climate policy decisions from two perspectives.First, SPARC explores how climate research agendas are developed and implemented, with a particular focus on understanding how the organization of climate research (“supply”) relates to the information needs of climate policy decision makers (“demand”).Second, SPARC investigates the relative magnitude of various sources of global environmental change in order to better understand the relation between the causes of global change and the priorities of the U.S. climate science portfolio.Key, cross-cutting themes in each of these efforts include the role and behavior of science policy institutions and the influence of ethics and values on science policy decisions.
The initial deadline is December 15, 2004; if not filled every two weeks until the search is closed.
