The Arts and Humanities Research Council and BBC Radio 3 invite applications for their new generation thinkers scheme. This enables early-career researchers to cultivate skills to communicate their research findings to those outside the academic community by developing their own programme for BBC3 radio, as well as to appear regularly on air. The aim is to develop a new generation of academics who can bring university research and scholarly ideas to a broad audience through working with media and public engagement. Applications should demonstrate an engaging and stimulating programme, and an ability to talk about other subject areas within the arts and humanities in an accessible and refreshing manner, with awareness of the wider listening audiences. Research must focus on arts and humanities but may include research with other disciplines, provided suitable links to the world of arts and humanities can be demonstrated.
