The Naked Scientists - interactive science, medicine and technology weekly live radio show with Cambridge University's Dr Chris Smith. We strip down science and lay the facts bare answering your science questions, interviewing top scientists and catching up with the latest top science news stories.
RNZ National, and BBC Radio 5 Live’s ‘Naked Scientists’, in conjunction with The Science Media Centre, are producing two lively one hour shows in Auckland and Wellington to be broadcast around the world.
The Naked Scientists regularly host paid internships including positions supported by the MRC (Medical Research Council) and the Genetics Society. In September 2014, working with Cambridge University, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Science and Technology Facilities Council, the Naked Scientists also added a new internship programme for PhD students based on the structure of the group's existing MRC prize summer internship that had existed since 2008. Applicants are "bought out" from their PhD research projects for two months to join the Naked Scientists team where they learn to participate in the programme-making process, including presenting, writing and publishing skills.
