COMMITTEE POSITION: Post-Graduate Position on the BSA History of Science Steering Committee

The History of Science Section of the British Science Association is looking to recruit a current UK-based postgraduate student from the history or philosophy of science to join its steering committee. In addition to advising the BSA on issues related to the history of science, the section organises a minimum of two events at the British Science Festival, held annually in September by the BSA.

This is a volunteer role and the postgraduate representative chosen will be expected to attend between 2-3 Section meetings per year and the festival itself (travel expenses covered). The postgraduate representative will work with the rest of the Section committee to source, develop, plan and deliver exciting lectures, debates and other science communication activities. The role is open to any UK-based current postgraduate student, who is studying any aspect of the history or philosophy of science, and is a great opportunity for anyone interested in public engagement and science communication to get hands on experience and develop new skills.
