Following the success of last year’s x-change, we’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to bring this annual event to the British Science Festival <http://www.britishscienceassociation.org/web/BritishScienceFestival/index.htm> in Bradford from 10-15 September. The x-change <http://www.britishscienceassociation.org/NR/exeres/30A5280E-7B97-441A-8ACC-0F34C64BD703.htm> is a relaxed, informal round-up of the day’s talks, events and workshops and it’s all brought together with the help of our team of volunteers.
This is a great opportunity to get experience planning and running public engagement events, meeting speakers and networking with some of the UK’s top science communicators.
Successful applicants will be organised, hard working and creative and, most importantly, be enthusiastic and passionate about science and good public engagement. It’s ideal for anybody interested in a career in science communication and volunteers will receive training, room and board at the Festival and travel costs.
