UKERC-POST Fellowship

  • Location: The fellowship can be carried out full-time for three months or part-time over a longer period. It may be undertaken at POST’s offices in Westminster or include remote working as part of a hybrid working arrangement.
  • Deadline: 22 May 2022
  • Salary: UKERC will provide funding at the same rate as the fellow’s PhD stipend maintenance grant, and they will be offered a travel, relocation and care grant, up to a total of £7,500.

In conjunction with POST (Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology), the UK Energy Research centre (UKERC) are offering a 13-week fellowship to UKRI funded PhD students (not in their first year) whose research is in an energy related field. There is one funded fellowship available.

The fellowship is an opportunity for students to gain real-world experience of the translation and communication of research findings to help inform decision making. The fellow will contribute to the activities of Parliament, by working with POST on an area of energy and climate change policy but outside their immediate area of expertise. During their time they will primarily research and produce a POSTnote and may also contribute to POST’s wider activities such as events and horizon scanning. Alternatively, the fellow may be placed with a Select Committee, engaging directly with science and policy by supporting the Committee’s work in scrutinising Government.
