These are schemes that enable PhD students to spend (usually) three months working at POST. Most fellows will research, write and publish a POSTnote during their time with Parliament, but some fellows have instead been placed with a parliamentary Select Committee or Library.
For further information and to find out more visit the Parliament UK website.
Pint of Science is an annual science festival that takes place in various cities in the UK and around the world. Researchers give an outline of their research to the public in a relaxed environment - like a pub! The events are aimed at the public who have an interest in knowing what is going on in science research, but who may not have a background in it.
If you are interested in giving a talk, or would like to get involved in managing the events (helping to organise speakers, venues and marketing), please let us know via this Google Form (tell us which topic you are interested in as well). PhDs and postdocs are especially encouraged to get involved, particularly if you are interested in science communication, public engagement and trying your hand at event management. If you have any queries please contact Sophia Komninou or Jess Fletcher.

“The whole experience of participating in The Scholar's Programme was fulfilling and inspiring. I feel that I did something useful for a good purpose and also had the chance to assess and improve myself.”Anonymous, Swansea University researcher
