Hosted by the IOP’s Women in Physics (WiPG) and Nuclear Industry Groups (NIG) and with support from the Physics Communicators Group (PCG), the Institute of Physics will host five lunchtime webinars on 20th – 24th July 2020, 1 – 2pm.

The opportunities for women and men to develop and sustain physics themed careers in the Nuclear industry are large, encompassing the multiple physics and stem roles from energy production, optimal fuel cell design, reprocessing and waste to materials research using high energy electron beam of the Diamond light source. This industry is a major employer of STEM professionals across the UK and Ireland, and there are opportunities for sustained and flexible careers that embrace a diverse and inclusive work environment.
