STFC announces that the 2014 Public Engagement Fellowships scheme is open

Applications for our Public Engagement Fellowships Scheme are now open.

The scheme forms part of the STFC's Public Engagement Programme and is open to all STFC funded researchers. We seek good communicators with research credibility to act as champions or ambassadors for STFC's science, technology, engineering and mathematics ('STEM') work to schools, the media or public audiences.

The Fellowships purchase a proportion of a researcher’s time to enable them to concentrate more on public engagement activities which will have a significant national or regional impact.

Public Engagement fellowships are aimed at those with significant research experience who have demonstrated a track record in outreach or communications work. The fellowships will recognise and reward current practitioners and enable them to expand the work they do in public engagement.

A list of current Public Engagement Fellows is available.

The closing date for applications is Friday 7th March at 4pm.
