Sense about Science’s Dublin office is providing an exciting opportunity for a volunteer intern who has a keen interest in science communication. The successful candidate’s role as intern would involve organising events, building of the Voice of Young Science (VoYS) network and communicating with scientists, citizens, the media and civil society organisations.
Sense about Science’s Dublin office focuses on building the VoYS network in Europe, and working with research groups through public engagement partnerships. Voice of Young Science is the growing network of dynamic early career researchers who are trained, motivated and committed to communicating about research. VoYS was started by Sense about Science in the UK and has grown into a supportive international network. Members meet at our Standing up for Science workshops where they are trained in engaging with policy makers and the media, challenging misrepresentation of research and, ultimately, standing up for science in public life.
Sense about Science is a small team working with thousands of supporters, from world leading researchers to community groups. It is a diverse band of people who share the goal of better representation of evidence in public life, and it is growing.
Our primary areas of focus are:
