Further Immersive Opportunities for Postgraduate Researchers
The Brilliant Club is an award-winning charity that recruits, trains and pays doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to deliver programmes of university-style teaching to small tutorial groups of high-performing pupils in schools that serve disadvantaged communities. Over the course of the 2018-19 academic year, The Brilliant Club placed over 500 researchers in schools across the UK, where they worked with over 13,000 pupils. There is now the opportunity for you to be involved in Spring term and Summer placements.
The Brilliant Club will be holding an information event on 21st November at 10am in Room 330, Keir Hardie Building.
In addition to earning £500 per placement, successful candidates will gain valuable teaching experience, enhance their knowledge of the UK education system and develop a programme of tutorials drawing on elements of their own research with a chance to disseminate it to a non-expert audience. As well as this, they will also join a cohort of like-minded researchers who are interested in widening access to highly-selective universities. Tutors will be supported by a training programme consisting of two full-day sessions and will accompany their pupils on a university trip.

These are schemes that enable PhD students to spend (usually) three months working at POST. Most fellows will research, write and publish a POSTnote during their time with Parliament, but some fellows have instead been placed with a parliamentary Select Committee or Library.
For further information and to find out more visit the Parliament UK website.
Pint of Science is an annual science festival that takes place in various cities in the UK and around the world. Researchers give an outline of their research to the public in a relaxed environment - like a pub! The events are aimed at the public who have an interest in knowing what is going on in science research, but who may not have a background in it.
If you are interested in giving a talk, or would like to get involved in managing the events (helping to organise speakers, venues and marketing), please let us know via this Google Form (tell us which topic you are interested in as well). PhDs and postdocs are especially encouraged to get involved, particularly if you are interested in science communication, public engagement and trying your hand at event management. If you have any queries please contact Sophia Komninou or Jess Fletcher.
Reaching Wider needs enthusiastic PGR students to develop interventions for young people based on their areas of interest/research. Reaching Wider will help you develop activities and resources to deliver engaging sessions at local schools and on campus to broaden the pupils horizons and support their learning skills. PGR students can hope to improve their own employability skills, self-development but also be a part of mission aimed at promoting opportunities to achieve equality in accessing Higher Education.
