Sparked is the Science Network's mentoring programme for final year students hoping to enter a career in science when they graduate.
Whether you're applying for a PhD or hoping to embark on a career in industry, Sparked will equip you for the unique opportunities and challenges that come with being a Christian working in the sciences. You'll be mentored by older Christians currently active in research, who have years of experience living out their faith in their academic context. Mentoring takes place in a small group setting via twice-termly Zoom meetings, with opportunities to gather in person in September and June. We cover a range of topics through the year, including Christian ethics in research, apologetics for scientists, and thriving in a competitive work environment.
"I wish something like this had existed when I was a student!"
