We’re looking for outstanding early-career researchers aged under 40 working in Australian universities and research organisations across the fields of science, medical research, technology, engineering and maths. A desire and flair for communicating your work is a must. Applications due in by 16 Jan 2015.
The 10 applicants with the most innovative ideas will be selected for a two-day workshop in February 2015, coordinated by ABC RN. Working with the network's experienced producers and science presenters, you will develop your radio program ideas and pitch to a panel of judges, including Robyn Williams (RN), Professor Fiona Stanley (UWA), Professor Lesley Hughes (Macquarie) and Professor Merlin Crossley (UNSW).
The five winners – our Top 5 under 40 – will undertake a 10-day media program as 'Scientists in Residence' at RN’s Sydney studios.
