James Smithson Fellow

The James Smithson Fellowship is an exciting new early career opportunity exploring the interface between research/ scholarship and policy through a Smithsonian lens. Open to post-doctoral scholars in the fields of science, the humanities, and the arts, this fellowship - tailored to each individual's interests, field and talents - provides an immersion experience with Smithsonian scholars and relevant collections, while developing an inside view of how policy is crafted and resource plans designed by direct experience internally with Smithsonian leaders, and externally with leaders throughout the Washington, DC network. This new program is the Smithsonian's first to combine the best of the Institution's vast scholarship and collections and its unparalleled access to the nation's capital in a year-long learning experience.
