Are you an early stage researcher? Don’t miss the chance to enter the annual SET for Britain competition, which provides a great opportunity to showcase your work to politicians and win a £3000 prize.
 
The competition will be held at the Houses of Parliament, and is open to early career researchers in the physical sciences, biological sciences, engineering, and mathematics. The competition aims to raise awareness of STEM subjects to MPs and peers, many of whom don’t have a background in science.
 
Prizes on offer in each category include:
  • Gold Award: £3,000
  • Silver Award: £2,000
  • Bronze Award: £1,000
The overall winner will be presented with the Westminster Medal in memory of the late Dr Eric Wharton.
 
The competition is open to anyone in the early part of their career, such as MSc level, PhD, Post Doc or similar, either in academia or in industry. Returners and those starting a second career are all welcome.
 
The deadline for the 2016 competition is 21st December 2015.
 
Find further information and apply now on the SET for Britain website. Finalists will be required to display posters of their work at the Houses of Parliament on 7th March 2016.
