About POST fellowships
While fellows typically get to help us with the production of a POSTnote or POSTbrief, this once in a lifetime opportunity to view the epicentre of policy-making from the inside may also include a secondment to a select committee or the House of Commons or House of Lords Libraries.
By the end of their time at POST, our fellows learn how to write for policy with balance and impartiality. They also develop a unique understanding of Westminster and forge important relationships with key stakeholders, while often delving into a novel and exciting topic of research.
All POST Fellows need to be able to work in the UK. POST Fellowships can only be confirmed after successful security vetting. This includes a Counter Terrorist Check.
