ESRC-GO Science Areas of Research Interest (ARI) Fellowships
The Economic Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Government Office for Science (GO Science) wish to appoint two Areas of Research Interest (ARI) Fellowships, for one year (with the potential to extend to two years), starting as soon as feasible from mid October 2019.
The aim of these fellowships is to enable genuine co-creation (of projects, analyses and programmes of work) between researchers and those making and informing policy. These two fellows will be the ARI Research Engagement Fellow and ARI Policy Engagement Fellow. The Fellows will work together as a team, and with GO Science (and the Chief Scientific Advisers network) and ESRC, to facilitate researchers and government departments (and relevant stakeholders) working together to develop and take forward research and knowledge exchange that addresses the ARIs.
These fellowships represent a unique opportunity for researchers and policy engagement experts to work at the heart of government at a time of rapid change and investment in the research-policy environment, potentially playing a key role in shaping the future of science capability in government and research-policy engagement in the UK.
