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. Further information about the fellowship schemes is posted here and on the sponsoring organisations' websites.
