Presidential Management Fellows Program

Modified: September 4, 2014

The Federal Government is always looking to recruit highly qualified individuals to its workforce. As part of this effort, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has leveraged the strong reputation of the Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program to recruit and train future science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) leaders.

The PMF Program offers a two-year appointment with leadership development training and upon certification of completion, fellows are converted to permanent or term positions with a full salary and benefits package. For 2014, OPM piloted and recruited from 41 disciplines for their new PMF STEM track. The STEM disciplines include but are not limited to: Biology/Biological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Biostatistics, Chemistry, Epidemiology, Mathematics, Medicine, Microbiology, Neurosciences, Pharmacology, Population Biology, Public Health, and Statistics.
