NERC Advanced Training: Short Courses 2014/15
Closing date: 16:00 GMT, 1 May 2014
Proposals are invited for the 2014/15 Advanced Training: Short Courses (ATSC) training initiative, which builds upon the successes of the previous Postgraduate and Professional Development Awards scheme held in 2013/14. Initiatives funded as part of this scheme must be completed by 31 March 2015.
This call invites proposals offering training initiatives in a variety of forms that fall both within the NERC science remit as well as addressing one or more of the Priority Training Areas contained within the ATSC Announcement of Opportunity document. These training initiatives must prioritise NERC-funded PhD students or develop the skills of environmental sciences early career researchers (working within academic and/or non-academic settings) for future careers in research and other contexts.
NERC has a total budget of £1m for this scheme. The maximum applicants can apply for to run a training initiative is £100k although it is expected that most training initiatives will request £20-£50k.

UK Energy Research Centre International Summer School
The UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) is holding its 10th Annual Energy Summer School from 6th to 11th July 2014 at the University of Warwick, UK. There will be 100 places available for UK and international students.
The School has been designed to give second year PhD students an opportunity to look beyond their own research, develop a broader understanding of energy and look at pathways to low-carbon and more resilient energy systems. It is professionally facilitated to provide continual support for participants, and includes networking opportunities, as well as social events.
British Science Association Media Fellowships
Do you want to put science in the headlines?
If you do then the British Science Association Media Fellowships are for you.
Experience first-hand how science is reported by spending 3-6 weeks on a summer placement with a print, broadcast or online journalist such as the Guardian, The Times or BBC.
You will work with them to produce well informed, newsworthy pieces about developments in science.
Come away better equipped to communicate your research to the media, public and your colleagues.
You will develop communication skills that could help you produce concise and engaging articles and funding applications.
