AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships

U.S. Citizens with PhDs in theoretical computer science (or other fields) who have an interest in policy and/or public service should consider applying for a AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowship.  These provide opportunities to serve for up to 3 years working with Congress or a federal agency on science-related policymaking.  In particular, there are opportunities within the NSF Directorate for Computer and Information Sciences & Engineering (CISE).

Applications are due by November 1. 

We also encourage people from the TCS community to think about proposing a session on an exciting area of research at a future AAAS Meeting.  Such a session typically would involve 3-4 speakers giving talks aimed at a general audience, and are a great way to increase the public awareness and visibility of the field.  The sessions for the February 2014 meeting are already decided, but eventually there should be an open call for proposals for the 2015 meeting.
