Are you a researcher in SEMS? July 14, 2010

Posted by qmresearchers in Science Communication.

The Royal Institute are looking to recruit a researcher for the period September 2010 until January 2011 to help them with preparations for the Christmas Lectures.

The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures are an exciting event that take place annually, and have done since the 1820s and are broadcast on TV. The role will involve working with academic researchers, TV production companies, science communication professionals and assorted kids, animals and unpredictable props.

This year they will be on the subject of materials and materials engineering. The ideal candidate will be a graduate or post-graduate in a materials engineering-related field. They will be enthusiastic about communicating their research to public and student audiences, and will want to get a taste about how this is done.

To apply for this position, please send a CV, 250 words describing your work to Olympia (a non-specialist), and an idea for an interactive experiment that we could use in the 2010 Christmas Lectures. Please send these to Olympia Brown obrown@ri.ac.uk<mailto:obrown@ri.ac.uk>. Closing date for applications is Thursday 22 July and you must be available for interviews the week after.

£12,000 split over the employment period in equal monthly instalments
