2008-2009 AMS-UCAR
Congressional Science Fellowship

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) seek candidates with backgrounds in the Earth sciences for the 2007-2008 AMS-UCAR Congressional Science Fellowship. Fellows participate in the legislative process by joining a Congressional office of their choosing in the United States Senate or House of Representatives. Typical duties include developing legislation, negotiating legislative compromises, writing speeches and briefing memos, meeting with constituents, and conducting background research. The AMS-UCAR Congressional Science Fellow joins more than 100 other fellows through the AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellowship Program.

Fellows must be US citizens and complete all requirements for their Ph.D. prior to the start of the fellowship year, which runs from September 1, 2008 through August 31, 2009. Support includes a $50,000 stipend, and up to $10,000 for moving, travel, health care, and other expenses.

Applications must be submitted by 1 February 2008. Details are available here. For additional information contact Paul Higgins (phiggins@ametsoc.org).

Fellowships in Sustainability Science, Harvard University

The Sustainability Science Program at Harvard University’s Center for International Development invites applications for resident fellowships in sustainability science for the University’s academic year beginning in September 2008. The fellowship competition is open to advanced doctoral and post-doctoral students, and to professionals engaged in the practice of harnessing science and technology to promote sustainable development. Applicants should describe how their work would contribute to "sustainability science," the emerging field of use-inspired research seeking understanding of the interactions between human and environmental systems as well as the application of such knowledge to sustainability challenges relating to advancing development of agriculture, habitation, energy and materials, health and water while conserving the earth’s life support systems.  This year we will give some preference to applicants who address the challenges related to meeting human needs for water in the context of sustainable development. In addition to general funds available to support this fellowship offering, special funding for the Giorgio Ruffolo Fellowships in Sustainability Science is available to support citizens of Italy or developing countries who are therefore especially encouraged to apply.

Due date for applications:  1 February 2008
