Read about this opportunity from the previous fellow, Jami Sheperd.
"It has been an honour to serve as the Agnes Blackie Memorial Research Fellow for the past few years. I have been able to pursue "passion projects" related to educational outreach, including running workshops in Junior Colleges across Aotearoa New Zealand, starting a student club related to global health, and developing relationships with the high school and hospital in Tonga. I am hopeful that these relationships will continue beyond my tenure as the fellow. I have also gained leadership experience by working with museums, students, and DWC committees. The position has allowed me to develop an independent research track in New Zealand and attract external funding to grow the research programme. I have also used this time to get lecturing experience in physics courses, something that was a passion and gift of Agnes Blackie. I am grateful for the opportunities the fellowship has offered, and it has been an honour to follow after such a trailblazer for women in physics."
