Post doc representative on the BSDB committee
The BSDB committee are inviting applications and nominations for a post doctoral representative to join the committee. We already have a Graduate Student representative and feel that the post doctoral community should also be represented. This position is available immediately and would be for a two year term and we would like someone in place by the New Year ideally. The post doc rep would attend committee meetings twice a year, one at the annual Spring BSDB-BSCB meeting and one in London in the fall. They would act as a voice and conduit for the postdoc community within the BSDB. This a great opportunity to gain insight and understanding of how a learned Society is run and could serve as a valuable addition to a CV. Please send applications and nominations to the BSDB Secretary : firstname.lastname@example.org
