UNSW Top 5 Under 40 – Opportunity For Early Career Researchers (5 Yrs Since PhD and Under 40)
UNSW and Radio National have partnered to provide an opportunity for early career researchers to apply to be part of a forum in early 2015 where you can showcase innovative ideas in science to leading scientists including Robyn Williams (RN), Professor Fiona Stanley (UWA), Professor Lesley Hughes (Macquarie) and Professor Merlin Crossley (UNSW).
We have had some real successes in these kinds of opportunities such as through the Inspiring Australia program, where saying ‘yes’ leads to bigger and wider opportunities. Effective science communications gives you an outlet through which you can build broader interest in your own work and that of UWS and HIE.
If you do meet the criteria, it is a very worthwhile initiative to apply for and I would be very happy to advise on helping to get a good application through. You may recall that Prof Lesley Hughes presented a seminar here some months ago.
Applications close Friday 16 January 2015 (midnight AEDT).
