Step up as an STA STEM Ambassador

Science & Technology Australia’s STEM Ambassadors program is now open for applications.

The STA STEM Ambassadors program pairs science and technology experts with their local Federal MP or Senator. Ambassadors meet with their Parliamentarian several times each year to discuss STEM topics of interest and enhance Parliamentarians’ access to STEM expertise.

This innovative program was created by STA in 2019, and has since trained 41 STEM Ambassadors matched with MPs and Senators.

In this new program intake, another 22 MPs and Senators from across the breadth of the Parliament have asked for a STEM Ambassador for 2023-24.

The STEM Ambassadors are drawn from Science & Technology Australia’s member organisations and come from a diverse range of academic backgrounds and interests.

STEM sector professionals who are members of STA member organisations are encouraged to apply for the program.

Applications close 9am AEDT Monday 7 November 2022.

Could you design the new AustMS logo?

The leading society representing the mathematics profession in Australia is about to undergo a rebrand – and we need your help! 

Mathematics is an incredibly broad topic to cover and we are having difficulty refining exactly what symbols and design elements represent the AustMS’s member base (i.e. you) and mathematics in general. So we’re asking for your help to come up with some ideas to use as a starting point to develop a new visual identity for AustMS.

You can submit a polished design with beautiful colours, or simply describe your idea with a quick sketch and some dot points – we don’t mind. All we ask is something that embodies what the AustMS and mathematics represent to you.

The winner will have the opportunity to work with us here at Miscible to develop, refine and transform their idea into a brand rollout for the AustMS and its members.

Please submit all designs/docs via email to molly@miscible.co and office@austms.org.au.

Entries close on September 15, 2022.

Good luck!

Mahler Lecture Series: Prof. Frank Calegari

The biennial Mahler Lecture Series is restarting this year with an exciting program of lectures delivered by Prof. Frank Calegari (University of Chicago). The Speaker’s research area is algebraic number theory, and he is particularly interested in the Langlands programme, especially the notion of reciprocity linking Galois representations and motives to automorphic forms.

The history of Mahler Lectures can be found on AustMS Mahler Lecturer Tour page.

For schedule and more information about the 2022 tour organised by AustMS and AMSI, which includes lectures in New South Wales, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria, please visit AMSI’s 2022 Mahler Lecturer site.
