Women In Physics Lecturer

The Australian Institute of Physics Women in Physics Lecture Tour celebrates the contribution of women to advances in physics. Under this scheme, a woman who has made a significant contribution in a field of physics will give lectures in venues arranged by each participating state branch of the AIP. Nominations will be sought in 2010 for the award of AIP WIP Lecturer for 2011. We will be seeking a woman working in Australia or overseas, who

  • has made a significant contribution in a field of physics research
  • has demonstrated public speaking ability
  • is available to do a tour of Australia, covering Canberra and each of the six Australian State capital cities.

Presentations will include school lectures, public lectures and research colloquia, subject to negotiation with the various AIP state branches and their contacts. School and public lectures are expected to be of interest to non-specialist physics audiences, and to increase awareness among students and their families of the possibilities offered by continuing to study physics. University lectures will be presented at a level suitable for the individual audience (professional or graduate). Air travel within Australia and accommodation will be provided.
