Academic Fellowship scheme
The Academic Fellowship scheme enables academics at a senior (post-PhD) career level to spend time working with Senedd Research on a specific project, where this will have mutual benefit to the academic and to the National Assembly for Wales.
The scheme aims to:
- Provide access to expertise on topics of relevance to priority areas;
- Promote public understanding of the Assembly amongst the research community;
- Cultivate relationships between Assembly staff and the research community; and
- Support the Assembly Commission’s strategic goals of providing outstanding parliamentary support and engaging with all the people of Wales.
The next call for academic fellows to work with Senedd Research will open on Monday 3 February 2020.
As in 2019, there will be:
- A Directed call for academics to work on projects proposed by the Assembly
- An Open call for academics to suggest their own ideas for projects of relevance to the Assembly.
