Am. Society of Limnology and Oceanography/AIBS Congressional Science
Fellowship, 1998-1999

As part of its commitment to facilitate responsible, informed, and
scientifically sound consideration of public policy issues, ASLO and the
American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) are working with AAAS to
sponsor a Congressional Science Fellow.  This program is designed to
provide the Fellow with a unique opportunity to make practical
contributions to the more effective use of aquatic science knowledge in the
U.S. government, and to demonstrate the value of the aquatic sciences to
society's decision-making and problem-solving.  

The Fellow will spend 12 months on Capitol Hill working with Members of
Congress or Congressional committees as a special assistant in legislative
and policy areas requiring scientific expertise.  The Fellow will
participate in a comprehensive orientation session in Washington in
September, 1998, on the relevant congressional and executive branch
operations plus a year-long seminar series on issues involving science,
technology, and public policy.  The Fellowship may begin immediately
following the fall orientation, or it may be postponed to a January 1999
start.  Reports to ASLO and AIBS during the year are expected.  The annual
stipend is $35,000.

APPLICATION CRITERIA:  Applicants must be U.S. citizens and members of ASLO
in good standing with an earned doctorate or equivalent doctoral-level
at the time of application.  Application materials for the fellowship and
membership information for ASLO are available from
