AHRC and POST Postgraduate Fellowships Scheme 2014

The scheme provides an opportunity for 2 AHRC funded postgraduate students to be seconded to the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) to assist in producing objective briefing materials for MPs and Peers.

POST is keen to explore the seamless culture between the arts and sciences, so although the fellow will work on a policy topic predominantly grounded in science and technology, applications should demonstrate a clear emphasis on an Arts or Humanities discipline.

Who is eligible to apply?

Any AHRC funded PhD students who will be entering their 2nd or 3rd year on 1st October 2014 (or 3rd, 4th or 5th year if part time).

The Placement

The fellowship will take place over a three month period, with a likely starting date between September 2014 and May 2015.

Further details on this scheme are available in the call guidance document (PDF) (PDF, 223KB).
