Calling all postgrads!
Imperial College London would like to recruit a postgraduate student representative for the NEW Science, Engineering and Technology Research Ethics Committee (SETREC). SETREC will focus on non-health related projects and will run alongside the ICREC which previously had oversight for all health and non-health studies.
A key aim of the Committee is to enable Imperial to maintain the highest ethical standards in all research relating to human participants.
SETREC will convene monthly on the third Tuesday of each month at South Kensington Campus. If you are interested in joining the Committee, please send a short letter outlining relevant experience and suitability. Please include an up to date copy of your CV.
Closing Date: 28 February 2019
The Public Affairs team is currently working on a new programme to support Imperial researchers connect with policymakers, including workshops with policymakers on specific themes, training, information and support to individual academics.
Seminars for Imperial researchers were introduced at the end of 2018 and will continue this year. These seminars aim to equip researchers with everything they need to initiate or continue their engagement with policy. The seminar will provide an introduction to policy-making and influencing as well as a practical guide on how to engage policymakers with research to achieve increased impact. It is suitable for all levels of experience and no preparation will be necessary.
The next dates are:
- Thursday, 21 February: 13:45 – 16:00
- Wednesday, 27 March: 9:45 – 12:00
- Friday, 26 April: 13:45 – 16:00
- Friday, 31 May: 13:45 – 16:00
- Friday 28 June: 13:45 – 16:00
All seminars will take place in the Boardroom, Faculty Building, South Kensington Campus.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
