Imperial Hub Mentorship Opportunities

Imperial Hub provides opportunities for Imperial students to make a positive difference in their local and global communities. Our vision is of a time where every single Imperial student engages in social and environmental issues during their time here.

PhD students have skills and experiences that could be highly valuable to student-led projects. We are looking for project mentors to help with our Skills for Sustainability programme and to support international development societies. The time spent mentoring a student project is not only hugely enjoyable and rewarding but the teaching experience counts towards the Associate Fellowship and can give your CV an edge when competing for an academic position or becoming chartered.

Project mentors for Skills for Sustainability will supervise the environmental consulting element of the programme. Students receive training to help them deliver a solution to a real-life project brief tackling a sustainability issue in College. We’re looking for technical experts and management gurus to help ensure the consulting project is impactful. International development societies at Imperial include Engineers Without Borders, Raincatcher, El Salvador and e.quinox. These groups are growing year-on-year and are engaging with larger, more complex projects in developing countries. Many now require team members with more experience in technical fields as well as knowledge of other ‘backroom’ functions such as communications and

If you think you have the skills and experience to help mentor a student project, email Pippa Smith on programmes@imperialhub.org More information is available on our website – www.imperialhub.org/mentorship

Researchers in Schools – new teacher training programme for post-doctoral researchers

Researchers in Schools (RIS) is launching a bespoke teacher training programme exclusively for post-doctoral researchers that will maximise their subject knowledge and considerable experience of higher education. It is designed to help researchers develop transferable and teaching skills while maintaining an academic profile, with the option to return to university research after two years. I would be grateful if you could make doctoral and post-doctoral researchers aware of this excellent opportunity through any channels available to you by forwarding on the attached poster.

While all post-doctoral researchers can apply to this well-remunerated scheme, we are especially pleased to be offering considerable salary uplift to maths, physics and engineering researchers which will see them paid £40,000 in their first year and rising thereafter. This acknowledges that across all sectors from engineering to tech companies, improving our pipeline of mathematicians, physicists and engineers is vital for future growth.  We also need to address the under-representation of girls and children from low-income backgrounds in these important areas.

RIS is led by two OFSTED-rated ‘outstanding’ teaching schools (Lampton School and George Abbot School) and The Brilliant Club, a charity that recruits, trains and places doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in non-selective state schools.
