Can you apply the laws of science to the science of laws? try this CCST fellowship

Just got this announcement for this important Fellowship program.  A student who got her PhD in my lab just started in this program for this years group (see the SJ Mercury News Story about this program here). Love the flyer by the way “Can you apply the laws of science to the science of laws?”. Email announcement is below:

“The California Council on Science and Technology (CCST) is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2010-2011 California Science and Technology Policy Fellowships based in Sacramento.

The S&T Policy Fellowship, a unique one-year professional development opportunity, provides the selected fellows with hands-on experience working with the California Legislature to incorporate science and technology into public policy. Eligible applicants will be PhD-level (or equivalent) scientists and engineers who have a sincere interest in California current events, the state legislative process, and a strong desire to learn how policy decisions are made.

Please forward this announcement to any individuals or group listservs that may be interested in this exciting opportunity. Deadline for submission of applications is February 12, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. PST. More information is available at http://www.fellows.ccst.us.”
