Churchill College Science Society

I’m Sam (second-year NatSci) and, along with some other JCR students, I’m setting up a science society for Churchill to organise and run talks/seminars/other events for anybody that wants to come along and find out about research by fellows and students in College and the University.

But before we start organising events, we need to have a full committee and we still have some positions vacant (including Vice-President!). If you’re at all interested in joining the committee, please send me an email (sjh282) or send me a message on Facebook (Sam Holland) and I can give you some more info and answer any questions.

Also if you have any ideas for events/would like to give a talk about your research at any point in the future, let me know as well!
