Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

London (mostly) scientific organisations

There is quite a bit of overlap with another post, in which vacancies pages are themed - however the two pages are different and so worth a look

AMRC - Association of Medical Research Charities http://www.amrc.org.uk/ A very useful umbrella organisation to which the major charities that undertake medical research are members. Given that all of these charities must raise funds, explain research to their supporters and comment when their disease condition gets into the press they are a useful resource for charity websites from which vacancies pages can be surmised. The larger charities will have dedicated science libraries, press teams, research communications teams etc. http://www.amrc.org.uk/HOMEPAGE/?Nav=479 - download list of member charities (see bottom right) or http://www.amrc.org.uk/HOMEPAGE/?Nav=479,536

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
