The Eno Center for Transportation is now accepting applications for its Summer 2022 Thomas J. O’Bryant Transportation Policy Fellowship. This fellowship provides a high-quality professional development opportunity for aspiring transportation specialists. Successful applicants will gain in-depth knowledge of transportation policy and practice under the guidance of Eno staff.

Responsibilities 

  • Assisting in the development of Eno publications and products. Fellows play an integral part in the research and development of transportation research documents, policy recommendations, and events. Projects cover all modes, sectors, and levels of government within transportation.
  • Contributing to the premier transportation publication: Eno Transportation Weekly (ETW). Fellows cover transportation-related hearings on Capitol Hill, analyze legislation, and develop think pieces and other commentary for ETW.
  • Bridging the gap between research and policy. Fellows participate in Eno’s outreach through participation in conferences, briefings, and private meetings.
  • Gaining in-depth knowledge of U.S. policymaking. Fellows engage the policymaking community through association with the Board of Directors, Eno education programs, and briefings to policymakers.

Duration
Duration of the appointment is 10 weeks (start/end dates to be determined by successful candidate and Eno staff.)

Qualifications
Fellowships are awarded to students with a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or Ph.D. working in transportation, engineering, housing, urban planning, or related degrees. Fellows must have already developed research skills and a strong writing ability.

Location
The Thomas O’Bryant Fellowship is traditionally in-person at Eno’s offices in Washington, DC. Given the unpredictable nature of the coronavirus pandemic, we will consider options for a remote fellow, if necessary, and reassess as public health considerations dictate.

Health & Safety
Vaccination is a vital tool to reduce the presence and severity of COVID-19 cases in the workplace, communities, and the nation as a whole. Eno Center for Transportation requires all employees working in the office or interacting in-person with other Eno staff members to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. In cases where vaccination may be contraindicated for medical or religious necessity, employees may submit a request for reasonable accommodation. All employees must comply with Eno’s employment policies and applicable federal, state and/or local laws which may include regular testing and face covering requirements.

Compensation
Fellows are paid a stipend of $2,250 per month.
