The Junior Researchers Club (JRC)

The Junior Researchers Club (JRC) aims to bring together postgraduate students and post-docs within the department for academic and social events.It promotes networking and co-operation between members, to help newcomers settle in and to build a community of dynamic young scientists. It also provides a resource for arranging self-help courses and tutorials.

Some of the events we organise include:

  • Tea and cake at 3pm every Thursday
  • Discussion groups
  • Informal graduate talks with pizza and drinks
  • Trips to the pub and group meals

The JRC also organises the annual Tinbergen Lecture, featuring a speaker nominated and voted for by the graduate community.

For up to date details visit the Facebook page or look out on the zoology-grad mailing list.
