UK SKA Community Events Committee Vacancies

August 6, 2020, from Astrolists

The Science and Technology Facilities Council’s UK SKA Science Committee is looking for Early Career Researchers to feed into a newly created committee for UK SKA community events planning from September.

The UK SKA Community Events Committee will meet in the weeks leading up to events and webinars as required. The primary purpose of the committee will be to shape future UK SKA community events led by the UK SKA Science Committee and supported by STFC. The committee will also provide an opportunity for members to input into how the UK SKA Science Committee and STFC might facilitate closer engagement with the scientific community and better share information regarding SKA science to the public.

All people from astronomy fields at an early stage of their careers are encouraged to join, be that PhD students, post-doctoral research assistants, research scientists or any other role connected to the science goals of the SKA. In line with STFC and UKRI’s ED&I policies, the UK SKA Science Committee affirms its support in striving for diversity in all aspects of its work, with the firm belief that greater diversity and inclusivity results in broader perspectives, more collaboration and greater innovation. With this in mind, the committee welcomes applications from people of all backgrounds, genders and ethnicities. We will also strive to make reasonable adjustments to enable people with disabilities to fully engage with and contribute to the work of the committee where required.

In order to apply, please submit a CV and a short paragraph outlining your current experience and why you would like to join the committee.

For further information or to register your interest, please contact Hugh Alabaster on by 7th September 2020.
