We are sad to report that Matt Filner, a Policy Analyst with SSTI, has submitted his resignation effective October 18 to pursue his academic studies full-time. In addition to being a valued staff member of SSTI, Matt was a key participant in organizing the Colloquium at Airlie House and a vital contributor to Partnerships: A Compendium of State and Federal Cooperative Technology Programs. His dedication, persistence, and creativity will be sorely missed. We wish him well as he works toward his Ph.D. at Indiana University.

Matt's departure leaves us with a position to fill. Please distribute this description to anyone that you think might be interested.

The State Science and Technology Institute (SSTI) is seeking a Policy Analyst. This position is with a small, dynamic non-profit organization located in Columbus, Ohio. The Institute serves as a clearinghouse and resource center for government initiatives in all 50 states that encourage industry to use science and technology for economic growth.

Responsibilities include: responding to requests for information; conducting research on policy issues; interacting with state and federal practitioners and policy makers; writing and producing issue papers and project reports; contributing to a weekly newsletter; and working with staff, board members, and sponsors on various projects.

The position requires a BA/BS or equivalent plus two years experience in public policy (exceptional recent graduates of masters degree programs in public administration, science and technology policy, political science or related fields will be considered); excellent written and verbal skills; strong research and organization capability; willingness to work independently or as part of a team; and dedication to creating a quality product. The position also requires PC skills in wordprocessing (Corel WordPerfect preferred), plus some spreadsheets and database experience. Consideration will be given to outstanding candidates who are able to establish an office in the Washington, D.C. area.

We provide competitive compensation that includes a progressive benefits package. Resumes will be accepted until the position is filled. To apply: please send resume, cover page and three references to: B.J. Shoemaker at SSTI. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.
