Christians in Science sponsors an annual “Oliver Barclay Lecture” in memory of Dr Oliver Barclay who was the driving force behind the establishment of The Research Scientists Christian Fellowship, the predecessor of CiS, and who was keen to encourage the next generation of effective communicators on Science and Faith.
The lecture is awarded to a promising young individual, usually under the age of 35, who has demonstrated an ability to communicate effectively on issues relating to Science and Faith. The chosen individual, who will normally be an active UK-based scientist, will present a short lecture on the topic of their choice at the annual Autumn Conference. We hope they will also present their lecture the following year, at the Connect and Spring Conferences. He/she will receive travel expenses for each conference where they give the lecture, and one honorarium equivalent in value to that given to other established conference speakers.
CiS members are invited to nominate an early career scientist for the annual award with a closing date of midnight 31st March 2023.
Nominations or any requests for further information, should be sent to both Gavin Merrifield (CiS General Secretary) email@example.com and Mary Browett (CiS Executive Officer) (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Nominations will be considered in April by a selection committee appointed by the CiS Executive Committee, and a recommendation made to the Trustees.
