ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • DUE August 6, 2018: CASE is now accepting applications for a two-year Science and Technology Policy Fellowship at the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) in Hartford, Connecticut, to begin October 2018. Open to PhD-level scientists and engineers. Instructions: http://ctcase.org/fellowship/CASE_CALL_FOR_APPLICATIONS.pdf

Development of a fellowship program for Connecticut will meet an important need by creating the capacity to expeditiously provide qualified advice and analyses on current science- and technology-related policy issues in a nonpartisan manner for the Connecticut General Assembly — while at the same time offering fellows invaluable experience in policymaking.” — Richard Strauss
