OTA congressional fellowship


  • Anonymous


The Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) is seeking qualified candidates from academia, industry, and government for its Congressional Fellowship Program for 1983–1984. The program, similar to AGU's Congressional Fellowship Program, provides an opportunity for individuals who have demonstrated outstanding ability to gain a better understanding of science and technology issues facing Congress and the ways in which Congress establishes national policy related to these issues.

OTA will select up to six fellows for a 1-year stint, which begins in September 1983, on Capitol Hill. The program is open to men and women of all disciplines who have demonstrated exceptional competency in the physical or biological sciences, engineering, law, economics, environmental and social sciences, or public policy. Candidates must have completed research and training at the doctoral level or have equivalent experience, as judged by the OTA fellowship selection committee. Salaries for successful candidates will range from $24,000 to $38,000 per year, based on the fellow's current salary and/or training and experience.
