Are you, or do you know, an exceptional early career researcher?
Every year the British Science Association asks for applications for the seven Award Lectureships available to early career academics who are skilled at engaging people with their research. These Award Lectures aim to promote open and informed discussion of science and related disciplines.
The selected lecturers receive an all-expenses paid trip to the British Science Festival (Chelmsford, Sept 7-11 2021) where they will present their lecture, as well as public speaking coaching and a £250 honorarium. There may also be other opportunities to present the Award Lecture at other science festivals in the UK.
Awards are available in seven different areas:
- Social sciences
- Engineering, technology and industry
- Environmental sciences
- Agricultural, biological and medical sciences
- Physical sciences and mathematics
- Digital innovation
- Science and the arts
The deadline for applications is 17.00 3 December 2020.
