The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI), a COSSA member, is accepting applications for its James Marshall Public Policy Fellowship, which begins September 1, 2016. The Fellowship is designed to “train early career scientists to (1) contribute to the effective use of scientific knowledge about social issues in the formation of public policy at the federal level; (2) educate the scientific community about how research can contribute to the development of public policy; and (3) establish a more effective liaison between social scientists and various policy-making mechanisms.” The fellowship is a one-year full-time post-doctoral level appointment in a Congressional office in Washington DC. Fellows are expected to “use social-psychological research to inform public policy and participate “in a range of activities involving the application of psychological research to analyze specific social policies and develop science-informed policy.”
The deadline to apply is February 1, 2016. See the program description for full details.
