AIP Seeks Applicants for State Department Fellowship

AIP is seeking applicants for the 2019-2020 AIP State Department Fellowship program. Fellows work at the department's headquarters in Washington, D.C., for a one-year term on topics at the intersection of science, policy, and international affairs.

Qualified individuals at any stage of their career are encouraged to apply. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics or a field closely related to the physical sciences, membership in at least one AIP Member Society, and eligibility for a security clearance, among other qualifications.

Application components include a letter of intent, resume, and three recommendation letters. Final interviews will take place in early 2019, and the fellowship term will begin in the fall of 2019.

AIP is not involved in the fellow’s placement. However, it does encourage fellows to seek opportunities beyond the traditional roles for scientists in the State Department when interviewing for an assignment to broaden the reach and visibility of scientific expertise within the department.
