Foreign Policy Fellowships for Physical Scientists

Have you ever wished you could put your scientific expertise to work in the field of foreign affairs by working on one of the many international issues that relate to science?  If so, and if your training is in the physics (or a related field), the American Institute of Physics (AIP) State Department Science Fellowship may be the opportunity you seek.   

AIP invites Ph.D. physical scientists who are US citizens and members of one of its ten constitutent associations to apply for the annual fellowship, which offers a year working at the State Department, a salary of $70,000, moving expenses, and health insurance.  Scientists of all ages and career levels, from early-career to senior positions are eligible and may receive sabbatical or leave-of-absence payments from an employer, if appropriate.  

The deadline is November 1.  Application information is here.
