News from the Researcher's Network

For those early career (post-doc to Senior Lecturer) staff not yet in the Researcher's Network, a couple of useful notices sent round this morning.

First, a reminder that anyone thinking of applying to the NERC July 2016 standard grant round needs to send a 2-page proposal summary to grants@port.ac.uk by 4pm Tuesday 19 January 2016 for a place in the pitch to peers selection event. A flyer with more details is available (UoP network only) here.

Second, for those doing outreach, or who want to develop their public speaking skills more broadly (conference talks, anyone?), the British Science Association's Hampshire branch will be holding a session called 'Engaging with Science: using improv techniques to get your message across' in Southampton on the 24th Nov. More details, and sign up, here.

And finally, for those who haven't signed up, be sure to check out the Researcher's Network Google+ page here.
