There are multiple routes to Science Policy Career Path.
Meetings with representatives of government might be a
minor fraction of the time but offer details of what might
be expected.

Non-profits and Science Policy became one of the career
paths offered in a recent seminar on Working in your first
year seminar.  I gained background information from several
managers in a medical school Research Integrity program at
University of Louisville.
They offered that many early career researchers give short
shrift to information and training programs.  In fact, they seek
ways of increasing engagement in this fundamental yet underfunded
area.

Research funding, scientific workforce planning, training and
diversity and communication are common topics.  Research
integrity is also a longstanding concern because of the
implications to human health and issues of impropriety.
