For UCL people – Opportunities for early-career researchers and prizes for public engagement at all levels via @HilJacksonWorks

This one’s just for UCL folk as far as I’m aware – if you have something similar you think might be of interest to others on the @ScicommJobs blog please feel free to make it known to me either at @JoBrodie or jo.brodie AT gmail.com, ta muchly 🙂

If you love your work and want to talk about it with people from outside your discipline, you could give a Bite-Sized Lunchtime Lecture next term.  These 15-minute talks give early-career researchers an opportunity to explore their work with a public audience.  To find out more, and to apply by Monday 12 December, visit the UCL Public Engagement Unit web pages: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/public-engagement/opportunities/bite-sized

Secondly, something for everyone:
Do you know someone who deserves recognition for their public engagement work?  This is your opportunity to nominate a colleague (or be nominated yourself) for the third annual Provost’s Awards for Public Engagement.  The deadline for nominations is Monday 12 December.  Find out more about the categories and how you can nominate UCL students and staff on the Public Engagement Unit web pages:
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/public-engagement/opportunities/awards2011

You can follow @HilJacksonWorks and @BiteSizedUCL to keep up to date with some of the Public Engagement Unit’s activities.
