Internships and fellowships

As part of our mission to build and develop links between science, research and policy, the Office continues to host and support interns and seconded fellows from research organisations into policy environments. Internships and fellowships might be with our office, assisting with projects on our work plan, or they might work alongside Chief Science Advisors within ministries on specific projects. We are happy to explore options and opportunities that build the capability for evidence based policy within government, but that also develops an awareness of policy needs and policy impacts for research organisations. If you are interested in exploring possibilities, get in touch with our office.

Why isn’t my professor Pasifika or Māori?

One of our interns, Dr Tara McAllister (Te Aitanga ā Māhaki), and her fellow researcher, Dr Sereana Naepi, joined RNZ to talk about their research into the stubbornly low numbers of Māori and Pasifika working at New Zealand universities.
