Executive Branch Science Fellowship Program: Call for Applications

This program gives psychological scientists the chance to spend a year working as special assistants in science-related federal agencies or offices.
Come spend the year in Washington!  The Science Directorate encourages psychological scientists at any point in their careers to apply for the APA-funded Executive Branch Science Fellowship program, designed to provide psychologists with substantial experience in the federal government’s scientific enterprise.  Fellows spend a year working as special assistants in a science mission agency or office, with recent placements including the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and Department of Defense.  Additional possibilities for 2010-2011 include the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit and the Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences.  Applications for the 2010-2011 program are due by January 8, 2010 to Heather Kelly in the APA Science Directorate’s Government Relations Office (hkelly@apa.org).
