We have an exciting job opportunity for you to join Parliament as a Knowledge Exchange Officer, working in a small and friendly team: the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology.

The Team

The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) serves both the House of Commons and House of Lords and is the office in UK Parliament that bridges research and policy.

POST is also home to UK Parliament’s Knowledge Exchange Unit (KEU), in which this role will be based.

To help Parliament access the best available research evidence, the KEU supports the exchange of information and expertise between researchers and the UK Parliament. It does this through working very closely with universities and research councils; providing training and resources, promoting opportunities for researchers to engage with Parliament, delivering academic fellowship programmes, and collaborating with the higher education sector.

This includes delivering recruitment, onboarding and offboarding processes, as well as related administration tasks for our fellowships programmes. It also includes working with external partners to deliver new and innovative collaborative projects which embed academics in Parliament. The successful candidate will also play an important role in the wider work of the KEU and POST.
