[Job, London] @POST_UK (Parl.Sci.Tech), Comms Mgr, £30.1k, clos 4 Feb

POST = Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology. I’ve always been slightly smitten with them as they produce a range of short (usually 4 page) briefing documents ‘POSTnotes ‘ about a huge variety of science topics, aimed at ministers and anyone interested. They also produce POSTbriefs – “responsive policy briefings based on mini-literature reviews and peer review.”
