Dr John Oliver has recently been awarded a prestigious Academic Fellowship from the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST).
One aspect of POST work includes making scientific research accessible to UK Parliament by producing forward-thinking briefings that involves horizon scanning activities on a range of subject areas.
Dr Oliver will be working in the area of scenario planning and regards the fellowship as a unique opportunity to further extend the instrumental impact of his research with UK Parliament.
Dr Oliver said that “he was delighted to hear the news and is looking forward to working with POST”. He would also like to thank Sarah Carter, BU Policy and Public Affairs Officer, who has provided expert advice and support during the application process.
