Opportunity profile: Bringing research expertise to Whitehall


AHRC fellowship will inform culture and heritage policy

Top tips

  • While an economics degree or PhD is not essential for applicants, a decent level of understanding in the subject will be highly appreciated.
  • The final project must be co-designed with the civil service—so applicants with a fixed idea of what they will do in Whitehall won’t get far.
  • All applicants should plan to work with a mentor I their home institution.
  • The successful fellow must have the ability to translate complex information into outputs that are appropriate for a policy audience.
