Fellowship and Intern schemes
The Institute is active in providing work experience in a policy setting to physics students of all levels.
The Institute of Physics (IOP) and the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) have established a scheme to enable a physics postgraduate student to be seconded to POST on a three-month placement to write a POSTnote, a four-page briefing paper on a physics-related topic, or conduct work within a relevant parliamentary office.
The IOP is very happy to announce the opening of applications for 2015’s IOP/POST Fellowship.
To apply, candidates must provide:
- A completed application form, which has been approved by their head of department or principal supervisor
- A concise, appropriately formatted cover letter outlining reasons for wishing to work for POST

The deadline for applications is 22 June 2015.
Interviews will be held in London during the week commencing 6 July 2015.
