POST Fellowships

POST fellows

POST runs several fellowship schemes with Research Councils, learned societies and charities, through which PhD students are sponsored to spend (usually) three months working at POST. Some fellowships are also open to post-doctoral researchers in academia and industry.

Most fellows will research, write and publish a POSTnote during their time with us, but some fellows have instead been placed with a parliamentary Select Committee or Library. Further information about the fellowship schemes is posted here and on the sponsoring organisations' websites.

What past fellows have said

"I found the whole experience really helpful, I found a new career direction (and met my future employers) and learnt about policy and parliament."

"The change of scenery and chance to focus on something completely unrelated to my academic research has given me renewed energy to complete my PhD."
