The SFI Public Service Fellowship is a pilot initiative which offers researchers a unique opportunity to be temporarily seconded to Government Departments, Agencies and the Library & Research Service of the Oireachtas, to work on specific projects where they can add value resulting in mutually beneficial outcomes. Successful researchers will take the title of “SFI Researcher in Residence” for the duration of the secondment. 

The work of the public service is critical to the successful economic and social wellbeing of Irish society, through its delivery of essential services, as well as its development and implementation of national policy. The SFI Public Service Fellowship programme recognises the importance of connecting the Irish research community with public sector organisations to help inform new policy and improve the services that they deliver.
