I do not usually write posts about specific job vacancies, but this type of post does not come up that often. It may appeal to many of you that read my posts .

The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) is seeking an adviser to work in the area of physical sciences, IT and communications. Working as part of a small team, you will play a key role in providing parliamentarians with objective information on a wide range of policy relevant issues in this area. Your main duties will include researching and writing briefing papers, assisting parliamentary select committees, and delivering a programme of events for MPs and Peers. Recent examples of topics handled include ICT and greenhouse gas emissions, next generation broadband access, space debris and aircraft noise.

You will need a good degree in physical sciences or IT, plus either a postgraduate qualification or work experience in science policy or science communication. You will also need a proven ability to communicate technical information to a lay audience.
