The Washington State Academy of Sciences (WSAS) is looking to build its pool of talent to serve as consultants and contractors in support of our mission, science in the service of Washington State. If you have an interest in working with a community of others who are committed to informing state policy making with the best available science, please see below.

WSAS is a not-for-profit organization of more than 330 elected members who are nationally recognized for their scientific and technical expertise. All members of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine who reside in Washington State are invited to join; others are elected in recognition of their scientific and technical contributions to our nation and their desire to contribute their expertise to inform issues in WA State.

WSAS mobilizes its expertise of members, plus a network of partners, to provide independent, non-advocate scientific and engineering assessments of issues that impact the citizens, government, and businesses of Washington State, and inform public policy making and works to increase the impact of research in Washington State.

WSAS draws on its state-wide pool of distinguished members, state government officials, and other key stakeholders and experts to address critical issues facing Washington State. The Academy organizes multi-disciplinary roundtable discussions, workshops, and symposia to assess risks, identify technological opportunities, and define critical research gaps. Each deliverable produced is peer reviewed to ensure the programs and projects evaluated, and reports provided are scientifically and technically sound and unbiased resources for informing the development of Washington State policy.
