UKRI Policy Internship Scheme

Alt text coming shortly
UKRI brings together the seven disciplinary research councils, Research England, which is responsible for supporting research and knowledge exchange at higher education institutions in England, and the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK.

UKRI’s Policy Internships scheme for PhD students is now open for applications. UKRI-funded PhD students can apply to do a three-month placement with the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) as a fellow. This is not just an opportunity for researchers in science and technology disciplines! Parliament engages with all policy areas, and research from across the disciplines, and POST welcomes applications from all disciplinary backgrounds. Fellows at POST will have the opportunity to produce their own parliamentary briefing from start to finish. By the end of their time at POST, fellows will have learned how to write for policy-makers with balance, impartiality and succinctness. They will also have developed a unique understanding of Westminster, forged important relationships with key stakeholders, and delved into a novel and exciting topic of research.

Deadline: 23:59 GMT, 4 November 2022
