Department of Science and Technology, Ministry of Science and Technology, GoI is mandated to formulate and deliver public policy support for the empowerment of STI in the country. DST has been implementing a Policy Research Programme in this endeavour. Under the programme, to build a critical mass of policy professionals/researchers, DST has been supporting a STI Policy Fellowship Programme (DST-STI PFP). The DST-STI PFP provides scientists, engineers and policy enthusiasts, an opportunity to gain exposure from the close quarters of policy making and contribute their knowledge and analytical skills in the STI policy realm. The fellowship provides an opportunity to develop the skills for young professionals who are interested to engage with the STI policy domain and/or as STI policy researchers contributing towards empowerment of STI policy landscape in the country.
Through this call, DST is inviting applications from dedicated candidates for the 6th cohort of DST-STI Post-doctoral Policy Fellowship. The details about the fellowship including guidelines, how to submit application, etc. may be seen at https://onlinedst.gov.in/.
