Over the two-year tenure, the Fellow will play a key role in helping design and launch new project ideas into Academy’s initiatives. SET is currently scoping projects related to artificial intelligence, mental health, and trust in science and data. The fellow may also support ongoing outreach activities for the Commission on Accelerating Climate Action.
