Apply your mathematics knowledge toward solutions to societal problems.

The American Mathematical Society will sponsor a Congressional Fellow from September 2022 through August 2023.

The Fellow will spend the year working on the staff of either a member of Congress or a congressional committee, working in legislative and policy areas requiring scienti c and technical input.

The Fellow brings his/her/their technical background and external perspective to the decision-making process in Congress. Prospective Fellows must be cognizant of and demonstrate sensitivity toward political and social issues and have a strong interest in applying personal knowledge toward solutions to societal problems.

Now in its 17th year, the AMS Congressional Fellowship provides a unique public policy learning experience, and demonstrates the value of science–government interaction. The program includes an orientation on congressional and executive branch operations, and a year-long seminar series on issues involving science, technology, and public policy.

Applicants must have a PhD or an equivalent doctoral-level degree in the mathematical sciences by the application deadline (February 1, 2022). Applicants must be U.S. citizens. Federal employees are not eligible.

The Fellowship stipend is US$93,013 for the Fellowship period, with additional allowances for relocation and professional travel, as well as a contribution toward health insurance.

Applicants must submit a statement expressing interest and quali cations for the AMS Congressional Fellowship as well as a current curriculum vitae. Candidates should have three letters of recommendation sent to the AMS by the February 1, 2022 deadline.
