    In June 2022, the Institute of Physics (IOP) will be opening a new public-facing exhibition at 37 Caledonian Road, its London building in Kings Cross. The exhibition is aimed at young people aged 7-9, and their families, and will be in support of the IOP’s Limit Less campaign that aims to increase the number of underrepresented young people doing physics post-16. 

     

    When creating this exhibition, we ask the question: how can we celebrate the contributions that are being made by physicists in the UK and Ireland to address the extraordinary challenges we are facing as society, a species and a planet? The 2022 Family Exhibition will explore this idea – shining a light on the physicists who are working to create a safer, more sustainable and healthier world and inspiring young people and their families to think about their future and the role they want to play in shaping it. Ultimately, the key message will be in line with the Limit Less campaign – do physics after 16 to change the world. 

     

    A vital part of this exhibition will be an exciting selection of interactive exhibits and activities; we want visitors to be able to step into a physicist’s shoes and try out activities inspired by real life science, and be inspired in turn. To deliver the exhibition, the IOP is seeking to appoint a freelance Exhibit Developer to support the London-based Public Engagement Team by contributing to the development, design, procurement and delivery of key elements of the exhibition. 

     

    If you are interested in finding out more, please email Toby Shannon-Smith, Public Engagement Manager (toby.shannon-smith@iop.org) for a job pack and more information about the recruitment process for this freelance opportunity. Deadline for expressions of interest – Friday 22nd October 2021.

    Scientific Communications and Outreach Officer - Universities Federation for Animal Welfare/Humane Slaughter Association.


    Salary: £28331 to £36914 plus £2194 London Weighting (where applicable)
    Full time, Hertfordshire (UK) based (with the possibility of home and/or flexible working)

    Application deadline: 22nd October 2021

     

    Are you a talented science communicator who shares our passion for using scientific evidence to benefit the lives of animals? Can you help us improve the way we disseminate knowledge about animal welfare to a wide range of audiences?

    The Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) and the Humane Slaughter Association (HSA) are two sister charities focussed on the promotion of scientific, evidence-based approaches to animal welfare. We fund research, support the animal welfare science community and advocate for evidence-based improvements to animal welfare worldwide.

    Communicating animal welfare science to both specialist audiences and the wider public is key to turning science into real-world improvements in animal welfare. Both charities are looking to improve the way they translate animal welfare science information into effective communications aimed at various audiences.

    You will have a comprehensive scientific knowledge (likely including a degree or postgraduate qualification in a biological science or veterinary medicine) and be a natural and experienced communicator. The ideal candidate will have a portfolio of science communication work through which they can demonstrate their skills.

    The postholder will work closely with our internal scientific and technical staff as well as the scientists and experts we work with to produce communications using multiple channels including web, e-learning resources, print, social media, video etc. You should also have experience of promoting news-worthy stories to the media through press-releases and other routes. Experience of graphic design, infographic production and video editing would be advantageous.

    This position can be office-based, or predominantly home-based: however, the postholder will be expected to attend some meetings at our offices in Hertfordshire and to undertake travel within the UK and possibly overseas. Because we’re based in the UK, the appointee will need to be UK-based and legally entitled to work in the UK.

    The candidate must be comfortable with the charities’ approach to animal welfare which includes co-operation with industries which use animals, including the livestock and slaughter industries. Whilst both charities promote the highest standards of animal welfare, they do not oppose the use of animals per se.
