Today is my last day at the AAS – as I stated back in May, I’m leaving to be the AIP/AVS Congressional science fellow. Orientation for this and all the Science and Technology fellowships overseen by the AAAS begins on September 1.
My work at the AAS has been a wonderful combination of many things I enjoy – astronomy, politics, policy, and technical things like WordPress, PHP, websites, and blogging. It’s also been a privilege to work with the excellent staff here at the AAS Executive office, as well as meet a wide array of AAS members. I’ve sat in on AAS council meetings, and chatted with graduate students interested in science policy.
The next Bahcall fellow will be Anita Krishnamurthi, who will begin in late September. I’m sure she will enjoy her time at the AAS as much as I have.Tags: John Bahcall Fellowship
