The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2019 Jefferson Science Fellows (JSF) program. Initiated by the Secretary of State in 2003, this fellowship program engages the American academic science, technology, engineering and medical communities in the design and implementation of U.S. foreign policy.
Jefferson Science Fellows spend one year at the U.S. Department of State or the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for an on-site assignment in Washington, D.C. that may also involve extended stays at U.S. foreign embassies and/or missions.
The fellowship is open to tenured, or similarly ranked, academic scientists, engineers, and physicians from U.S. institutions of higher learning. Applicants must hold U.S. citizenship and will be required to obtain a security clearance.
The deadline for applications for the 2019-2020 program year is October 31, 2018. To learn more about the Jefferson Science Fellows program and to apply, visit www.nas.edu/jsf
The Jefferson Science Fellows program is administered by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and supported by the U.S. Department of State and the United States Agency for International Development.
Employer will assist with relocation costs.
