History & Policy is seeking a dynamic and confident historian to help advance our relationship with Cabinet Office. This is a rare opportunity for a historian to engage directly with government policymakers. The person appointed will carry out a scoping project, working with civil servants in Cabinet Office to examine the potential for a fellowship programme and to consider how history might contribute to specific policy areas, and to policy development methodology. Please note that the deadline is 5pm, 15 September 2011.
H&P is an expanding Partnership based at King's College London and the University of Cambridge, and additionally supported by the University of Bristol, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Leeds, the Open University, and the University of Sheffield.
We are the only project in the UK providing access to an international network of more than 500 historians with a broad range of expertise. H&P offers a range of resources for historians, policy makers and journalists.
