Position description

Through our flagship Horizon Fellowship, we place fellows at host organizations to help tackle policy challenges related to artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and other emerging technologies.

 

Fellows selected for our program receive policy-focused training, mentorship, and support in matching with a host organization for a full-time, fully-funded fellowship based in the Washington, DC area. Potential host organizations include executive branch offices, congressional offices, and think tanks.‚Äč

 

Through our part-time 10-week training program, fellows gain critical skills, subject-matter expertise, and policy process knowledge.

We teach applied skills such as memo writing, policy research, and briefing through interactive exercises, allowing fellows to practice the type of work they’ll be doing during their placements. Exercises are flexibly structured so that fellows can choose the areas in which they build further subject-matter expertise, and include input and feedback from senior experts, policymakers, and mentors with decades of experience in technology and policy. Fellows also learn about the key players in the policy world, how they interact, and what their histories and cultures are. Fellows come out of the training program set up to do high-quality work during their placements and prepared to effectively navigate the matching process.
