Join Us!

The Blackett Lab Family provides a space for UK based Black physicists to connect with each other. We act as an online community of support, interaction, and fun, and encourage members to get involved with lots of social, educational, and professional opportunities. Our primary platform to connect with each other is Facebook, though you can engage with us on Instagram and Twitter too.

The purpose of this short questionnaire is for you to introduce yourself to us, and for us to get to know you a bit more. If you have any questions about joining, or you’re using a browser that doesn’t support this form, feel free to contact us directly at

This questionnaire uses reCAPTCHA to block spambots.

We hope you won't mind Google storing the browser cookies that come with our use of this service. If you're ok with this, you'll need to give your consent below, before you can proceed. If you'd rather that Google kept their cookies to themselves, you can join us by emailing us at the address above. It would be more convenient for us if you could use the questionnaire, but we understand and applaud the determination of anyone who eschews all Google services.

Privacy Policy: As a member we will only store your email address and name. This will help us recognise your request to join our private Facebook group, and your answer to “what you hope to get out of joining us”. We will retain this data indefinitely, but will happily delete it if you ask us to do so. Your data will be encrypted prior to storage, to protect your privacy in case of a data breach.
