The 2024–25 Civic Science Fellows cohort will launch in spring 2024. As 2024–25 host partners open applications for Fellows, we will share them here and in our monthly newsletter (see below to sign up). Envisioned as a Civic Science Lab, Fellows and partners carry out pioneering work to co-create pilots, partnerships, knowledge, models, and new ways of working that can help seed collaborations between science and society. All Fellows will engage as a cohort in a learning program and community, developed in collaboration with the network and an interdisciplinary committee of advisors.

The UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute/Center for SMART Health is seeking a 2024–25 Civic Science Fellow to conduct interdisciplinary research exploring the intersection of artificial intelligence, healthcare, and civic engagement. The Fellow will examine the societal and ethical impacts of AI on healthcare delivery, patient outcomes, and community health; collaborate with interdisciplinary teams to assess the longer-term implications of AI in healthcare; and engage with community and patient groups to understand their perspectives on AI in healthcare. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science, AI, Data Science, or related fields, with a focus on healthcare applications, or a Ph.D./MD in a related field. Learn more and apply here.

The Evidence Project of the Pew Charitable Trusts is seeking a 2024–25 Civic Science Fellow to advance the work of the Transforming Evidence Funders Network and the Transforming Evidence Network, which create opportunities for learning and action across sectors to generate and mobilize publicly impactful research and strengthen the use of research and other types of evidence for better and more equitable outcomes. As part of their work, the Fellow will collect and synthesize promising grant practices; identify shared goals and opportunities to align funder investments; and support funder network workgroups focused on grant practices and building the underlying evidence base.
