  • Careers Night - Mon 25th Aug. The Australian Institute of Physics is holding a free careers night next Monday, 5:15pm-7:30PM,at QUT. They are aiming to provide some interesting snapshots of different career paths for physics graduates and discussion opportunities with the presenters after the event. Additional information is provided in the email which was sent to members, or ask the exec for a copy.
  • Summer Research Projects: If you’re interested in physics research, you should consider a summer project. This is eight weeks of real-life research with one of the awesome physics researchers at UQ. If you want to apply for the scholarship, you’ll have to hurry: applications close August 30th, so get checking out the available mathematics and physics projects here and here.

    PAIN is the students' club for Physics at University of Queensland, and is affiliated with the Student Union. We are sensitive intellectuals with a good sense of fun, and include undergraduate and postgraduate students and a few others. We meet every Friday during semester at 5:00PM in the Physics Tea Room in Parnell buiding (7-208, aka ΦTR) for a semi-organised activity followed by pizza and soft drinks. These vaguely physics-themed events are affectionately named 'Error Bars', and are usually followed by some socialising and conversation about science, engineering and the meaning of life. An appetite for pizza is beneficial, but all that is required is a little interest in science and engineering. Come and meet us!
