ARI Research Engagement Fellow
This role will have core responsibility for identifying and convening research expertise appropriate to address selected ARIs. The fellow will work to enable dialogue with government departments to refine and develop the ARIs. The Research Engagement fellow will work closely with the Policy Engagement Fellow in the development and delivery of work between cross-disciplinary/sector expert groups of researchers and policy makers to identify and design the research approaches needed to address them.
ARI Policy Engagement Fellow
This role will have core responsibility for proactively engaging with relevant policy makers across government. The fellow will take lead responsibility for the development and delivery of evidence-informed and innovative methods and tools to facilitate interactions between cross-disciplinary/sector expert groups of researchers and policy makers to support refinement of ARIs.
