Of related interest: UK’s largest career event for scientists

via the Stempra mailing list


This is a career event for scientists not science communicators, so why am I posting it?


My reasoning is that many if not all of those presenting at this event will employ science communicators of some sort so it may be worth having a look at the exhibitors list. Ive had a quick peek and it seems to be quite global so if your interest is more London-only this might not be the post for you, but see the second and third links.

Its the sort of site that I would go digging in to extract contact information for other organisations that might employ science communicators

I even spotted a couple of gaps in my science communication vacancies pages listing from looking at this page
