Are you interested in advocacy on behalf of biomedical research? If so, please consider applying for the APS Early Career Advocacy Fellowship. This two-year program seeks to engage early career investigators in advocacy activities and provide them with skills to become long-term advocates for scientific research.
Fellows will attend an orientation session at the 2015 Experimental Biology meeting to learn about the Society’s advocacy efforts, receive regular emails on science policy issues from the APS, attend the SPC’s fall 2015 and 2016 meetings in Bethesda and actively participate in at least one project with the SPC. To be eligible you must have received your doctoral degree within the last ten years, be living in the U.S. for the two-year award period and be a member in good standing of the APS.
