CBER Lunchbox Podcast

The CBER Lunchbox Podcast aims to highlight what it is like to be a scientist. In each episode, we sit down with a guest for an informal chat about how they got into science, what their day-to-day is like, and the ups and downs of being a scientist.

Our Aim

We explore the diversity of career paths and range of experiences possible in science. In each episode, we sit down with a scientist to get to know the person behind the research. Our aim is to more accurately represent what it means to be a scientist – to show you the diversity of people beyond the lab coats and PowerPoints. We are researchers in the field of ecology and conservation and throughout this series, we will be interviewing researchers in similar fields. If you know a scientist with a story to share, please get in touch!  

Episode 1-5

Foremost we would like to say thank you to all our guests for participating and being involved.
