Federal Office of Evaluation Services Seeks Research Fellows

November 16, 2018

Over the past for years, the Office of Evaluation Services (OES) within the General Services Administration has been working quietly and diligently to complete over sixty randomized evaluations of federal agency programs. Bringing insights from the behavioral and social sciences to test federal programs, scientists have been able to provide evidence upon which agencies can make informed decisions to improve programs and save money.

OES seeks applications for a new cohort of Fellows and Associate Fellows to begin one-year fellowships in Washington, DC, in October 2019. Prior Fellows have come from universities, non-profits, and federal departments. Successful applicants must possess a deep knowledge of at least one field within the social and behavioral sciences, as well as an ability to apply that knowledge within the federal government, design and manage a large operational field trial, and “exceptional” communication skills.

The deadline for applications is Sunday, December 30, 2018, at 11:59pm EST. Further details can be found on the OES website.
