We are seeking an individual to run an active and diverse outreach programme in order to raise awareness of Materials Science and Engineering at a national level, and to promote Materials Science and Engineering as undergraduate subject choice.
The postholder, working closely with representatives from Materials Science Departments and the Henry Royce Institute, will lead an ambitious national outreach programme. As part of this programme, the postholder will develop strategies, materials, and networks that will enhance our collective ability to inform students, parents and teachers on the existence of Materials Science and Engineering as a discipline, its importance to UK industry, and the opportunities it offers for career progression. The postholder will work in close collaboration with outreach representatives from nine partner universities, as well as from the Henry Royce institute, to develop and implement such a coordinated national strategy. This includes managing the creation of a range of promotional materials, activities and events aimed at boosting the profile of Materials Science and Engineering nationwide. The postholder will be expected to lead and coordinate the presence of the discipline at large science festivals such as Big Bang and the Cheltenham Science Festivals.
This post will involve a need to travel and stay overnight when necessary. It will involve working outside of normal hours including evenings and weekends when necessary.
