Are you a Postgraduate Researcher at Bournemouth University? Do you want to share your research with a public audience 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 to deliver a short talk about your research to a friendly public audience. The event will take place from 6:30-8:00pm on Tuesday 7 May 2024 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 receive training and support from our experienced Café Scientifique organisers in the Public Engagement Team, who will help you prepare and deliver your talk with confidence.
- Please complete a short form to let us know why you are interested in getting involved, and include a bit about your research.
- If selected, we will send you guidance on how to develop and deliver an engaging talk to a public audience. We will ask you to produce and practice a ‘draft’ version of your talk.
- You will be invited to attend a training session on Tuesday 9 April to deliver your talk in front of the organisers and other speakers involved with the event. We will provide you with supportive feedback and ask you to do the same to the other selected speakers.
- The Public Engagement Team will organise the event and promote it to local public audiences. The team will support you every step of the way. From developing your ideas to engage with a public audience, to setting up and promoting your event. We will also be on hand on the day to help your event run smoothly
If you are interested, please complete this form. The deadline for applying is Friday 8 March, 5pm.
Please note: Completing this form does not guarantee you a space. We will be in touch with you to discuss your interest.
