RCUK CSF: Leading to Engage - Public Engagement Programme

Through a new institutional Reseach Council UK (RCUK) award focused on supporting and inspiring public engagement with research, we are pleased to announce recruitment to our first leadership programme focused on public engagement. Up to four enthusiastic individuals will be selected from each College to join a campus-wide cohort to receive bespoke training and financial support, helping to develop and implement a coherent strategy to nurture further activity locally within the College and more broadly at an institutional level.

The outcomes of this scheme will be reviewed by both RCUK and senior staff within the University and will feed into key ongoing initiatives. As this is intended to be a sustainable research-led programme, the scheme is primarily aimed at staff on permanent non teaching-focused contracts, ideally between Lecturer and Reader level. More information is available here. Queries and formal expressions of interest should be sent to the University's Public Engagement with Research Officer, Dr Caroline Gillett (c.d.t.gillett@bham.ac.uk) by 22 December 2015.
