TV Producer Seeks Young Scottish Astronomers

Thursday, December 5, 2013 - 10:03

If you’re a graduate student, postdoc, or early-career astronomer and originally hail from Scotland, television producer/director Simon Williams wants to hear from you. In collaboration with BBC Scotland and Mara Media in Glasgow, he is developing a TV program with the working title “The New Scottish Explorers.” It will feature people of Scottish descent who are involved in groundbreaking scientific research anywhere in the world and aims to inspire young Scots to consider careers in science.

Williams is looking for Scottish science grad students, postdocs, and research fellows who might be willing to be featured in the program. Your current institution, wherever it’s located, would be spotlighted too. “The New Scottish Explorers” isn’t meant to be nationalistic — only to show Scottish kids what’s possible if they choose to pursue a career in science.

If interested, please contact Simon Williams by email or by telephone at +44 (0) 79748 08079. And please share news of this opportunity with anyone you know who might be a good candidate for the program.
