Global experts are coming to Brighton to discuss how maths can better assist science and engineering research.
The 15th International Conference on Integral Methods in Science and Engineering (IMSE) is being held on the Moulsecoomb campus of the University of Brighton in July.
IMSE 2018 will provide opportunities for scientists and engineers to exchange information and ideas that support their work. Experts from the USA, France, Germany and Edinburgh have accepted invitations to give keynote presentations, as has Professor Sergei Sazhin, the University of Brighton’s Professor of Thermal Physics.
The University of Brighton Academies Trust in partnership with the University of Brighton is offering paid internships in four Sussex secondary schools for 4-weeks this summer. This opportunity could help you gain valuable experience teaching maths or physics if you are considering teaching as a career.
As an intern you will be paid £300 a week and you can apply for this opportunity if you are in the penultimate year of a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) subject undergraduate degree.
Activities may include working with experienced teachers on planning, shadowing and lesson observations; helping plan and deliver lessons; running projects and master classes for pupils and providing small group support for pupils.
The internship offers:
• Hands on experience in a school for 4-weeks from mid-June to mid-July 2018
• The opportunity to earn while you learn. You will be paid £300 a week
• Full support from a dedicated mentor and support from subject teacher in your school
• The chance to experience mathematics or physics teaching before you commit to it as a career.
To mark International Women’s Day in 2018 we are celebrating the achievements of just some of the academics working here at Brighton.
Our Women of Impact web feature demonstrates how our academic staff are achieving great things, working on the complex challenges facing society, educating and inspiring the next generation and making an impact in communities. The varied and diverse career journeys illustrate the huge range of talent that we welcome at the University of Brighton.
