A physicist at the University of Cambridge has taken on a second role as a fellow at the UK’s Science Museum. Because of the public’s growing interest in particle physics, the museum had begun looking for “a switched-on scientist with a flair for communication.” In his new role, Harry Cliff is working on several interactive exhibits. One that focuses on the Higgs boson opened last week, and another scheduled to open next year will center on the Large Hadron Collider. “It’s unusual to find a role that lets you combine active research with creative science communication. It’s a bit of a juggling act at times, but I’m really enjoying the challenge,” Cliff told the Guardian.
