NERC - the Natural Environment Research Council - is the leading funder of independent research, training and innovation in environmental science in the UK.
The council supports NERC funded PhD students to work for three months at POST. There are also opportunities to work in the libraries in the House of Commons or House of Lords, or with a parliamentary select committee.
The NERC policy placements are now closed for applications. For more information about the fellowship visit the UK Research and Innovation website. You can also keep in touch with fellowship opportunities by following us on Twitter.
