Dear colleague,

Would you be able to share the news of this unique opportunity with your graduate students, faculty, staff, and alumni?

Thank you!

Eagleton Science and Politics Fellowship

The Eagleton Science and Politics Fellowship offers PhD-level scientists and engineers the opportunity toapply their scientific
training and expertise to the development and implementation of relevant state policy.

Fellows will apply their advanced technical training in service to the state of New Jersey. The program will provide participating New Jersey state legislative and executive branch offices ready access to trusted in-house science
advisors to help facilitate government decision-making related to the wide range of critical public policies involving complex science, engineering, and technology. Fellows will develop an understanding of state government and how to build careers in public
service.

Supported by a stipend, selected Fellows will participate in an intensive summer training seminar focused on New Jersey
state politics and government; covering topics such as effective communication strategies, power structures, and political processes.Each Fellow will complete a one-year, full-time placement as a science aide in a legislative or executive branch office.

Eligibility requirements

PhD-level degree in science, technology or engineering
