Join our team

We’re a friendly bunch and we do a lot of cool stuff but to keep doing all this cool stuff (and more of it), we need a few extra hands…

The roles we do are varied and tend to cross over. This means we are simply looking for people with interesting ideas and drive and enthusiasm to get involved with organising (this sometimes involves playing hook-a-duck and baking cakes).

If this sounds like you then grab a committee member at one of our events or drop us an email (intersci.edinburgh@gmail.com).
We look forward to hearing from you!

 

Finally we would like to leave you with our fun science fact of the month:

The average weight of a fluffy cumulus cloud is 500.000kg. (Roughly the weight of 100 elephants!

Go on… Google it.
