Harwell Green Club

Date: 17.08.2017

Time: 1600

Location: R18 Visitor Centre

Dr Martin Gibson is a locally based specialist in environmental and sustainability issues, and a regular attendee of the Harwell Green Club.  Previous speakers could be assured of highly pertinent questioning from Martin, drawing on his wealth of experience in the sector, so this is an opportunity to turn the tables !

Part of the raison d’être of the Harwell Green Club is to provide a forum where people with an interest in a low carbon sustainable future can share their views and experience  -  making this a perfect fit and opportunity for Martin to share with us the interests which brought him into this sphere.

A issue that has strongly affected Martin’s career choices has been the need to communicate environmental issues. He will share some of his key approaches and experiences. Technically trained people often have no training in marketing and communications  -  but there are some techniques that can really help to get people to take action.

 

Martin will be addressing the Harwell Green Club at 4pm Thursday Aug 17th.  If you are coming from off-site, please contact John Vandore so that he can register you for entry to the Rutherford Appleton Lab site.

Early Career Scientist Symposium

Date: 01.09.2017

Location: Diamond Light Source, Harwell Campus

Considering a non-academic route?  Wondering where your qualifications will take you? What will my next position be? What are my options?

Early career scientists have developed a wealth of both generic and specialist skills opening a large number of possible career paths both within and beyond academic research.

The postdoc committee at Diamond Light Source has organised this careers symposium on the 1st September with speakers from a diverse range of career paths, who will discuss their careers and give their advice on finding the best opportunities. There will be discussions and panel sessions to discuss different careers areas as well as a career fair over lunch and some relaxed networking opportunities with a glass of wine and dinner in the evening.

The outline for the day is as follows;
 
09:00 - 09:30  Welcome and refreshment
09:30 - 12:30   Career Talks from guest speakers

Talking Science - Dangerous Worlds

Date: 08.09.2017

Time: 1330 and 1900

Location: Pickavance Theatre, Harwell Campus

Dangerous worlds
Audience 10yrs+

Dr Elizabeth Tasker, Japan Space Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)
We thought the planets of our Solar System were weird worlds, until we began to see the lands harboured by our neighbouring stars. Huge Jupiters snuggle so close to their star that years last days. Worlds like Star Wars’
Tatooine begin their nights with dual sunsets, while rogue planets float in perpetual darkness with no sun at all. Other planets are split lands with hemispheres of eternal day and night, while still more drown in global
oceans or seas of lava and tar. Elizabeth will take you on a journey to visit worlds more extreme than anything in fiction and ask if any could be called home.

Talking Science - Pressing Fire on the most powerful laser in the world

Date: 24.11.2017

Time: 1330 & 1900

Location: Pickavance Theatre, Harwell Campus

Pressing FIRE on the most powerful laser in the world

Audience 14yrs +


Dr Ceri Brenner, STFC Central Laser Facility


RAL is home to two of the world’s most powerful lasers. They heat matter to millions of degrees in less than a trillionth of a second, rip apart the atom and generate the fourth state of matter, plasma. But why go to all this effort? These machines aren’t just a physicist’s playground. Super powerful lasers were developed for the
hugely inspiring quest of fusion energy as a sustainable, clean heat source for power stations. Now
they’re driving innovation in medical imaging, security inspection and nuclear waste management. Not bad for a fancy form of light.

Talking Science - Last day of the dinosaurs

Date: 26.01.2018

Time: 1330 and 1900

Location: Pickavance Lecture theatre, R22, RAL

Prof Phil Manning, Professor of Natural History, University of Manchester and STFC Public Engagement Fellow.

Dinosaurs dominated the earth for over 160 million years.  The cause behind the extinction of this remarkably successful group has been much debated, but often centres on an impact-triggered mass extinction event.  The global occurrence of a rare earth element, iridium, supports a comet/meterorite impact at the KPg (Cretaceous/Palaeogene) boundary.  A 180km diameter crater situated beneath the Yucatan Peninsula (Mexico) likely represents the main impact site.  However, unique evidence has surfaced that might shed new light on the last day of the dinosaurs.

 

Audience 8 yrs +
