Amazing opportunity: California Science and Technology Policy Fellowship

This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to mix science and technology with policy: California Science and Technology Policy Fellowship.  This Fellowship is basically a modified version of the well known AAAS Fellowships.  But it is better because, well, it is in California.  The first PhD student to finish from my lab did this a few years ago and is now working at the White House.  More information about the program is available here: PROGRAM DESCRIPTION.

To be eligible one must possess a PhD or equivalent degree or an MS in an engineering discipline plus at least three years post degree work experience.

Instructions for applying are available here.  Some FAQs about eligibility and the program are here.

Applications are due Feb 28, 2013.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
