Mapping the heavens: The radical scientific ideas that reveal the cosmos

Advances in cosmology have led to the discovery of dark matter and dark energy, but how do you map what you cannot see? Join the Royal Institution and Astrophysicist Priyamvada Natarajan for a look at the biggest questions in modern astrophysics, their surprising answers and some of the radical scientific ideas that shape our current cosmic view.

Dark Matter Day is coming – don’t be left in the dark

On 31 October 2017, the world will come together to celebrate one of the biggest mysteries of our Universe, dark matter, and you can play a part – don’t be left in the dark.

Dark Matter Day will mark the global hunt for dark matter, the huge part of the Universe that scientists’ calculations tell us exists, but that has never been observed.

STFC, the UK’s lead partner for the global Dark Matter Day initiative, is looking for people/organisations to get involved and run Dark Matter Day events. Several universities are already setting up Dark Matter Day events. These can either be events put on especially for Dark Matter Day or existing events that can be adapted to include a dark matter day event.

The day is expected to attract a lot of global attention – don’t miss out on being involved.
For more information please see the following pages:

Careers event for astronomy PhD students, Manchester, 4 October

The RAS,  Institute of Physics and STFC are organising a special careers event for STFC-funded early career researchers on Wednesday 4 October, 10:30am– 4:30pm, Manchester. This event will give an insight into the broad range of career paths open to STFC PhD-holders.

This event aims to help, inspire and motivate you to explore the careers options open to you in a welcoming and friendly environment. You will hear from both employers of physics PhD-holders, who will talk about the sorts of people and skills they are looking for, and also from former STFC students who have gone on to pursue interesting, successful careers in a variety of sectors including operational research, data science, public engagement, finance, nuclear regulation and ecological research.   

Confirmed employers include: Pivigo, NHS, Sharp Laboratories of Europe, STFC and GORS.

There will be a round table discussion where you will have the opportunity to talk to physicists working in a variety of sectors:

Nicky Agius, Department for Education
Claire Burke, Liverpool John Moores University
Ben Cooper, Transport for London
Elizabeth Cunningham, STFC
Susan Vu, Reinsurance group of America

This event is free to attend, but you will be required to pay a £30.00 registration fee which will be reimbursed if you attend. Please note, if you do not attend this event we will not reimburse you.

Although the event is open to all PhD students in astronomy and particle physics, STFC will reimburse travel expenses for students in receipt of STFC studentships, and you will be given a claim form on the day.
