US Department of State 2008 Jefferson Science Fellowship Program
The articulation of accurate science for state to policy makers has become an essential element in establishing effective international relationships in the 21st century. Recognizing this need, the U.S. Department of State created the Jefferson Science Fellows (JSF) program which established a new model for engaging the American academic STE communities in the formulation and implementation of U.S. foreign policy. The JSF program is administered by the National Academies and supported through a partnership between American philanthropic foundations (the MacArthur Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation), the U.S. STE academic community, professional scientific societies, and the U.S. Department of State.

The position will carry tenure within an academic department to be mutually decided upon by the candidate and department. Possibilities include Geography, Political Science, Environmental Studies, Communications, and numerous others. Required Qualifications: PhD in a field relevant to science and technology policy

Post-Doctoral Opportunities

The I3P has published the 2007 Research Fellowships for post-doctoral researchers, junior faculty and research scientists.
The Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection (I3P) seeks to advance its national research agenda through a research fellowship program. The I3P fellowship program helps to build a nationwide cadre of investigators focused on critical research challenges and provides expanded research opportunities at I3P Consortium member institutions. A targeted goal of the I3P fellowship program is to add depth and breadth to critical research needs highlighted by the I3P Cyber Security Research and Development Agenda which identified the following core research areas: Enterprise Security Management; Trust Among Distributed Autonomous Parties; Discovery and Analysis of Security Properties and Vulnerabilities; Secure System and Network Response and Recovery; Traceback, Identification, and Forensics; Wireless Security; Metrics and Models; and Law, Policy, and Economic Issues. See the I3P Consortium Member Contacts page.

Student Opportunities

University of Michigan and Wayne State University STIET-Incentive-Centered Design Program The STIET program brings together faculty and doctoral students from the University of Michigan and Wayne State University in research, training, and outreach, through an incentive-centered design (ICD) approach to modern information systems. System performance depends on the strategic behavior of autonomous, self-interested humans; therefore we draw on theories of rational decision making, game-theoretic models of strategic interaction, and economic, psychological and other social science theories of motivation to form a principled grounding for system design. STIET students and faculty collaborate in interdisciplinary ICD research fueled by a weekly seminar series and twice yearly research workshops.  Our program provides curriculum, research training and a collaborative research community. Generous NSF IGERT-funded fellowships are available. We also have a new summer research training and mentoring program to prepare and encourage promising undergraduates and masters students to pursue a graduate degree, and will provide a training ground in research leadership and mentoring for our PhD students, called the STIET-Summer Research Opportunity Program (S-SROP)
The School of Informatics at Indiana University offers a PhD in Security Informatics Security Informatics is centered on the core protocols and practices of information technology security and its use. The Security Informatics curriculum includes all subjects central to computer security: mathematics, protocol analysis, system and network security. It also naturally dovetails with the span of material pertaining to informatics. Indeed, Security Informatics is security integrated with human-computer interaction, social engineering, science informatics, and information technology rather than isolated from the large economic and social milieu.
