Sydney Policy Lab is your place to experiment and learn

The lab is here to help students at the University of Sydney build strong connections with policymakers, communities and campaigners and work on the big policy issues of the day.

At the lab we have occasional and ongoing opportunities for students, though we are not currently accepting interns.

We put together research teams for collaborative research projects, which often include research assistants undertaking higher degree research. If you are interested in being approached for such work when your research interests align with our projects, please send an email including your CV, transcript and a short writing sample for us to keep on file.

Find out how to work with us on longer-term projects, from PhDs and University of Sydney postdoctoral fellowships to discrete research projects. 

Our events are an excellent opportunity to meet world-renowned policymakers and campaigners.
