Are you a post-graduate researcher at Bournemouth University who wants to share your sustainability-themed research with the public and improve your communication skills? If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you!
We are looking for 3-4 post-graduate researchers to take part in a special edition of our Café Scientifique public event series, where you will deliver a short talk about your research to a friendly public audience. The event will take place from 6:30-8:00pm on Tuesday 5th September 2023 at The Black Cherry in Boscombe.
Café Scientifique is a fun and informal way to engage the public with your research and get feedback from different perspectives. You will also receive training and support from our experienced Café Scientifique organiser Adam Morris and host George Askwith, who will help you prepare and deliver your talk with confidence and clarity.
The overarching theme for the event will be sustainability. You must be free for a training session at 2-3pm on Tuesday 22 August in Fusion F107, and for the event itself in September.
The deadline for applying is midnight at the end of Wednesday 26 July.
How it will work
- Complete a short form to let us know why you’re interested and a bit about your research and how it meets the sustainability theme.
- If selected to take part – you will be sent guidance on how to develop and deliver a great talk. Based on this, you will develop and practice a ‘draft’ version of your talk.
- At 2-3pm on Tuesday 22 August 2023, you will attend a training session to practise your talk in front of the organisers and other speakers, and receive and give supportive feedback.
- The event will be organised for you and marketed to our local public audience. Feel free to share it with anyone you know!
- Enjoy taking part in the event on 5th September.
