This time of year is a time when many of you will be making plans for the next academic year, or helping your postdocs find their next position. The AMS Congressional Fellowship can be a “postdoctoral” experience, or can be an option for an unpaid leave or sabbatical year for faculty members at any career stage. Retired faculty are also welcome to apply. I wrote about the Fellowship on October 14, and point you to that post again.
Right after I posted that piece, the Trump administration moved to restrict student visas, and make it harder for universities to hire faculty members who are not US citizens. These actions caused me to post two other pieces in quick succession (on Oct 16 and Nov 4). Many responded to the calls to action in those; thank you.
Let’s hope that 2021 brings a successful transition of power between Presidents and a vaccine available and distributed to all.
