Do you have a PhD which has been awarded within the last three years with an interest in public policy, the environment, science & technology, natural resources, foreign affairs, social policy, law, statistics or economics? Would you like to apply your research skills in the  parliamentary environment? 

The Australian Parliamentary Fellowship (the Fellowship) is managed by the Parliamentary Library on behalf of the Parliament. The purpose of the Fellowship is to:

  • contribute to scholarship on the Parliament and its work;
  • promote knowledge and understanding of the Parliament;
  • raise awareness of the role of the Library’s Research service;
  • provide a researcher with work experience in the parliamentary environment; and
  • support “early career” scholars.

A successful applicant for the 2021 Fellowship would be expected to take up the position in the second quarter of 2021.

The Fellow will be required to research and write a monograph on an approved project. The Library will publish the monograph provided it meets the Library’s publication standards. Further details are provided in the Duty Statement and Selection Criteria.
