An important part of science is getting your results and ideas across to others, through papers, presentations, theses, grant proposals, conversations and interviews. Your audience may include specialists in the field, those from other disciplines, industry, or the general public.
 
How can you best communicate your science?

This workshop brings together experts in different fields - writers, broadcasters, publishers, industrialists, computer scientists, and presenters - to help you explore and develop your communication skills.  Working together with others on the course you will learn how to structure presentations, develop writing skills, bridge disciplines and have hands-on experience of broadcasting.
 
The Genetics Society will cover travel, accommodation and meals for successful applicants.
 
Tutors include:
Armand Leroi (author, broadcaster and professor of Evolutionary and Developmental Biology, Imperial College, London)
Chris Smith (broadcaster, medical doctor, lecturer in Virology, Cambridge University)
Rebecca Stott (novelist, historian and professor of English Literature and Creative Writing, University of East Anglia)
Ana Marques (expert in experimental and computational genomics, Oxford University.
 
Organisers: Enrico Coen, Dominique Kleyn, Chris Ponting, Jon Slate and Chris Smith
 
The course is open to PhD students and postdoctoral researchers working in genetics and related areas.

Deadline for applications – 3rd March 2013. 

The course will take place at Chicheley Hall (http://www.chicheleyhall.co.uk/)
