Are you looking for a new job? Our hiring managers are sharing their insider tips!
Each month, they will answer common questions from job seekers to help you:
A career is a personal, yet shared journey that lasts over the course of a lifetime. We know that people move on to pursue their next career challenges, and that’s why we’re open and supportive when it happens. While it’s sad to lose great people, we consider it an opportunity to stay connected and grow our network of alumni and friends. If you’re interested in returning, or want to refer a stellar candidate, please reach out and contact our HR department.
Knowing if that move is right for you and gaining the experience necessary to get a job in an “alternative” science career can be difficult. We understand this struggle and may have an opportunity for you!
We offer a volunteer fellowship program for science professionals who are interested in transitioning away from the bench. Each fellowship is tailored to the interest, background, and available time of the fellow. Fellowship opportunities may include work in public policy, program management, research and evaluation, or communications. If you’re interested in applying, please send us a resume and your best cover letter explaining your availability and why you’re interested in the fellowship.

“Public comment” refers to the process of soliciting feedback from the public or membership on official reports, regulations, guidelines or programs. Public comments generally take one of two forms: Rulemaking — formal public consultation; Request for Information — informal public consultation. Comments are analyzed, synthesized, and disseminated to assist with decision-making.
Public consultations give voice to stakeholders and provide organizations with more detailed scientific, economic or industry expertise needed to develop the most effective processes, policies and guidelines.
Our five step process to facilitate the solicitation, receipt and analysis of public comments includes:
