Opp: BES POST Fellowship

Added 26 March 2014. Closing date 19 May 2014.
The British Ecological Society sponsors a three month Fellowship at the UK's Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) for 2nd or 3rd year PhD students in ecology.

The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology

The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) is an office of the two Houses of Parliament (Commons and Lords). POST is responsible for providing balanced and independent analysis of science and technology-based issues of relevance to Parliament.

POST regularly publishes short briefing papers (POSTnotes) and longer reports giving parliamentarians a broad overview of the background to an issue and an analysis of the policy implications.

BES POST Fellowship

The BES POST fellow will work on a policy topic grounded in science and technology and will be expected to produce a POSTnotecontribute to a longer report, or assist a Select Committee of either House in a current inquiry.

The exact topic of the Fellowship will be determined by the Board of POST. Applicants should therefore be aware that, on joining POST , the Fellow may be working on something other than their originally-proposed topic.

The Fellow will be expected to organise a seminar to inform or disseminate their work.


Eligibility is restricted to postgraduate students registered in an ecology PhD in a UK university who are engaged in their second or third year of full-time study or part-time equivalent at the time of application.
