Women in Physics Society

Promoting and cultivating future leaders in physics

The purpose of the Oxford Women in Physics Society is to promote career development of women in physics while providing a welcoming support network. We aim to enhance the experience of women working in the department through increased interaction with peers, mentors, and role models.

On these pages you can find out a bit more about us. We host regular events for physicists in Oxford to meet each other and interact with prominent women in physics. We've also been thrilled to host the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics UK for the past two years. You can find us on Twitter and Facebook too.

There are so many great women in physics with stories to tell. That's why we've started a series of interviews with some of them! Our latest is with Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin fellow Dr Sneha Malde, and we've previously featured artist and astrophysicist Jayanne English, and our president, Rebecca Bowler. We're also compiling some resources on women in physics and in science more generally that you might like to look through.
