Are you a recognised academic expert working in the UK in a field of study relevant to the Government's International Priorities? If so, do you already know about the activities we organise to share expertise, knowledge and analysis of issues and events with the academic community and other experts from outside government, to the benefit of all?
The Research Analysts are a cadre of career specialists in their fields, who provide policy-relevant but policy-neutral advice and expertise to policymakers across the British Government. Many Research Analysts joined us from academic careers. The contact point for the academic community in the FCO is the Head of Research Analysts.
