Sydney Policy Lab community fellowships are open to people whose work influences policy change – directly or indirectly. If your job involves trying to understand and address local or global policy challenges and you can influence how they are approached, then we welcome and encourage your application.
As a rough guide, applicants will have been working in policy-related fields for at least five years, such as service delivery, program design or evaluation, or advocacy. We welcome people working in all fields, from science to social work, health systems, wellbeing, housing, education, engineering and technology, economic development, built environment and design, trade and development, human rights and more.
Successful applicants will be embedded with people in the University for three months full time or six months part time, and complete a project of their choice. You will need to negotiate a secondment or work release from your workplace or sponsoring organisation and must be available to attend the University for this period.
The Sydney Policy Lab is committed to gender balance and diversity, including participation from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people from ethnically and linguistically diverse communities. We strongly encourage applicants from a diversity of backgrounds and experiences to apply.
Your application should include the following documentation:
