Parliament offers a range of fellowships which enable academics to come and work at Parliament.
There are opportunities for academic researchers at any stage of their career to conduct research within Parliament, either examining Parliament itself or producing research to be used by Parliamentarians.
POST's Parliamentary Academic Fellowship Scheme
POST PhD Fellowships
PhD students can be sponsored to spend (usually) three months working at the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST). Some fellowships are also open to post-doctoral researchers in academia and industry. This scheme is run with Research Councils, learned societies and charities.
