Day of Science & Careers 2014 28 April 2014; 10:30 – 18:30, London
Day of Science & Careers 2014 is the Society of Chemical Industry’s annual career event. The meeting is designed for Early Career scientists with a particular focus on providing information about the wide range of careers covered in the chemical, and chemical using, industries. You may be surprised to learn that over 70% of people working in these industries work in SMEs (small and medium enterprises), so there are lots of opportunities beyond the large organisations you may have heard of so far.
Westminster Fellowship Scheme
The Westminster Fellowship Scheme is an annual opportunity for two Royal Society of Chemistry members to spend three months working at the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST). There are two fellowships available each year, to current PhD students or other members who hold a PhD. The Royal Society of Chemistry will give the successful applicants a £5,000 bursary to cover their three months at POST. Deadline 15 May 2014. NB – This version of the scheme is for chemists, but the BBSRC and Institute of Physics have also offered this in the past.
RSC Researcher Mobility Fellowship funding
Our Research Mobility Fellowships support PhD and Masters students, as well as early career researchers, to undertake short to mid-term scientific visits to overseas or UK organisations. Non-RSC-members may apply for the scheme but, if successful, will be expected to complete the RSC membership process before any funds are awarded.
Application window 01 April – 01 June 2014.
