Calling PhD Students that want to work in Science Communication March 22, 2012

Posted by qmresearchers in Science Communication.
Are you are a PhD student that is thinking of working in the field of science communication? Are you unsure about how to gain the relevant experience or contacts?
If the answer is yes to both/either of these questions then you may be interested in The British Science Festival Student Bursary Scheme. The scheme enables institutions to offer one or more students the chance to experience the British Science Festival in person.
The British Science Festival is the largest annual public science event in Europe presenting the latest science, technology and engineering with over 250 events, activities, exhibitions and trips taking place over the week. The British Science Festival is unique among science festivals in the UK as it moves around the country and in the last few years has taken place in Liverpool, Guildford, Birmingham and Bradford.
This year the Festival will take place in Aberdeen from 4th -9th September, hosted by the University of Aberdeen with events taking place on campus and throughout the city. The theme for the 2012 Festival is ‘Energising minds’ with all of the events featured tailored for non-specialists, as are the debates, exhibitions and social events – which form an important part of the experience. For more information about the Festival please visit www.britishsciencefestival.org.
About the package:
Each bursary costs £350 and the package includes:
•Accommodation for 7 nights (Monday 3rd – Sunday 9th September 2012)
•Breakfast each morning
•Daily vouchers for lunch Tuesday – Sunday and dinner Monday – Sunday
•The opportunity to attend some of the headline events as VIP audience and free tickets to some pay for events
Each institution or company can purchase either one or a number of the bursary packages. You can do this by completing a student bursary order form. To guarantee a place, order forms must reach the British Science Association by 6 July 2012.
