Jefferson Science Fellowship

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 and international development.

Jefferson Science Fellows spend one year on assignment at the U.S. Department of State or the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) as science advisors on foreign policy/international development issues. Assignments are tailored to the needs of the hosting office, while taking into account the Fellows’ interests and areas of expertise.

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 prior to beginning the fellowship.

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.
