I am pleased to say that Hayley Ash will be assisting in the organisation of Behaviour and Evolution Research Group (BERG) seminar this coming semester. These seminars are held on Wednesdays at 5.30pm in 3A94, and are generously sponsored by the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW). If you are not already a member please consider joining UFAW (http://www.ufaw.org.uk/ ). It is still only £10 for students (£30 others). By joining UFAW you can help make real, practical and lasting advances to animal welfare throughout the world - for companion animals, farm animals, animals used in research, captive wild animals and those living in the wild that are affected by human activities. Please do join to thank them for their continued support of us in BERG and to enhance animal welfare.
We are looking for people to volunteer to present at our BERG meeting slots for this semester.
The first meeting is on Wednesday 16th September at 5.30pm in 3A94 (Psychology common room). We shall use this meeting for introductions, including I hope for our new MSc on Human Animal Interactions, and updates from the summer...please come prepared to share news of any grants awarded, papers published, exciting conferences attended etc.
I have set up a Doodle sign-up, so just fill it out one date to indicate the week that you would like to present. ONE person per week, please.
Presenting at BERG is an excellent way to practice talks, hone your presentation skills, get feedback on grant application ideas, lead a discussion of a controversial/interesting research paper etc.
You can also suggest external speakers who we might invite (local speakers only please - we reimburse basic expenses incurred).
The sign up is here: http://doodle.com/9z6r393yxa93v33r
When you sign up for a slot, please send Hayley a brief title BEFORE Friday 4th September so she can circulate the programme in advance. (hayley.ash at stir.ac.uk<mailto:hayley.ash at stir.ac.uk>)
Supervisors - please encourage your students to present!
If you have new students who might wish to be on the BERG mailing list, please send them this e-mail. To sign up to the BERG mailing list new folk must complete the form available here:
