The STFC Public Engagement Early-Career Researcher Forum (the 'PEER Forum') supports talented scientists and engineers in the early stages of their career to develop their public engagement and outreach goals.

This ensures the next generation of STFC scientists and engineers continue to deliver the highest quality of purposeful, audience-driven public engagement.

Why join the PEER Forum?

  • To learn practical skills on how to lead public engagement activities, giving you a more rewarding career
  • For support and expertise from the wide ranging network of academics and public engagement professionals within the STFC community
  • To enhance your reputation within the scientific community and give you the opportunity to boost the profile of your work by talking to a wider audience

The PEER Forum is for practising early-career scientists and engineers who have passion and ambition for carrying out excellent public engagement alongside, and complementary to, their career in science or engineering. We are seeking Forum members from across the breadth of STFC’s pure and applied science and technology remit.

The PEER Forum will meet twice a year to share learning and to participate in sessions that will strengthen the depth and breadth of their understanding of public engagement and outreach.

The programme of these sessions will largely be shaped and directed by the members of the forum. The meetings will be face to face and will consist of a mix of activities, such as interactive sessions with invited speakers from the world of public engagement. Recently speakers have included Olivia Keenan from SEPNet and Christian Diget, an STFC Leadership Fellow in Public Engagement

Deadline for applications is 6 September (which consist of a CV, letter of support and a short document detailing your answer to some questions detailed on the website).
