Careers in science policy exist in a wide variety of settings including government, international, professional associations, academia, industry, lobbying firms, and law firms. Policy influences our lives across various issues and requires evidence-based, strategic communication, community engagement, and support for decision makers.

Science Policy offers graduate & postdoctoral fellows the opportunity to implement their research skills on the policy side. In this webinar, we will learn about how to position yourself to transition into science policy.

Brought to you by the NY Academy of Sciences
