Building Engineers Invited to Apply for Federal Fellowship

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers and the U.S. Green Building Council are sponsoring a one-year fellowship in Washington, D.C., that will allow the participant to work in the federal government in a technical advisory role. Members of these organizations are eligible to apply.

Possible placement areas include Congress, a federal agency such as the Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the General Services Administration, or the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

The fellowship runs from September through August 2009, and an orientation is conducted through the American Association for the Advancement of Science. A $50,000 stipend will be provided to the selected fellow.

Candidates should possess a doctoral or other terminal degree in engineering or another building-related scientific discipline. Final placement of the selected fellow depends on the needs of the government offices and agencies at the time as well as on the skills and experience of the applicant.

The deadline for applications is May 1. Contact Doug Read, ASHRAE program director of government affairs at 202.833.1830 or
