Careers in science communication: what are your options and how do you get started?
Our next ACT branch event brings science communication professionals and students together for a careers-focussed networking night on Thursday May 22 at the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (CPAS).
Students can meet practitioners and hear about pathways into the industry while professionals can share their experience with aspiring science communicators.
If you are a science communication professional offering internships or mentoring opportunities, our careers night is the perfect platform for connecting with interested students.
The night will begin with a series of short talks highlighting different pathways and careers in science communication. Guest speakers include:
- Chris Cassella (Managing Director, ScienceAlert)
- Jasmine Fellows (Editor, Double Helix Publications, CSIRO Publishing)
- Dr Phil Dooley (Writer for Cosmos Magazine and ANU media office; Freelance presenter)
- Emily Standen (BHP Billiton/CREST Awards Officer at CSIRO)
- Amy Dobos (Science Communication and Events Officer, Institute for Applied Ecology, University of Canberra)
Following the talks there will be an opportunity for students and professionals to network over food and drinks.
