Bright Club is a unique and innovative variety night, offering an opportunity for researchers to talk about their work in a light-hearted and entertaining way, without sacrificing any of its quality, or ridiculing it. Born out of a collaborative project at Beacon for Public Engagement, University College London, the format has since spread around the country. The Newcastle Bright Club, funded by Beacon NE, regularly attracts large public audiences in pubs and clubs around the city and for one very special night, will come to Newcastle University Students’ Union on Wednesday 26 October, celebrating the research of Newcastle University’s Faculty of Medical Sciences.
The event starts with a drinks reception at 5pm, is expected to last until 6.30pm and you should book in advance.

Faculty Research Fellowship (2 posts)
Salary: £27,183 – £43,622
Closing Date: 14 December 2009
Two Faculty Research Fellowships are available in the Faculty of Medical Sciences, for outstanding researchers with postdoctoral experience. The Fellowships are open to researchers currently working in the Faculty who do not hold an academic post or the offer of an academic post.
The Faculty of Medical Sciences aims to provide career progression opportunities for Research Associates to ensure that we encourage the best researchers into an independent academic research career. Applications are therefore encouraged from existing post-doctoral researchers who do not have externally funded fellowships.
The Faculty Research Fellowships, offered as part of the Career Pathways Scheme, will be awarded in competition and aim to allow early stage researchers to develop independence and their own research niche. The expectation is that during the two year period the Fellow will obtain preliminary data and make successful externally funded Fellowship applications.
