2. CCST is seeking scientists and engineers for a year of public service and government leadership training in the California State Legislature. SACRAMENTO, Calif. | CONTACT: Annie Morgan, annie@ccst.us
The California Council on Science and Technology is now accepting applications for the 2019 Class of our CCST Science & Technology Policy Fellowship. Completed applications are due by February 28th, 2018.
The CCST Science Fellows program is open to those holding a PhD or equivalent degree in science and engineering, and in social science fields such as economics. Eligibility information, program timeline, and the application link can be found at fellows.ccst.us/apply.php.
As CCST Science Fellows, scientists and engineers spend one year in Sacramento serving the California State Legislature. Working as legislative staff in the State Assembly or State Senate, they get a front-row seat learning about the craft and process of lawmaking in the State of California --- a dynamic arena that often sets policy trends for the United States and the world.
Our fellowship is an incredible opportunity to transform a researcher's professional path. In fact, more than 50 percent of CCST Science Fellows have been hired by the California State Legislature or state agencies since completing their fellowship. Other alumni return to academia, nonprofits, or industry with a deeper understanding of how science informs policymaking, enhancing their career as researchers, professors, consultants, and leaders.
Read reflections from current fellows (http://fellows.ccst.us/blog/category/fellows-in-training) or from alumni far along in their careers (http://fellows.ccst.us/blog/category/fellows-profile). See how the CCST Science Fellows program has changed their professional path --- and helped make California's policies stronger with science!
