Join the ECS Committee

27 Apr 2019

Our Early Career Scientist (ECS) Committee is the envy of the sector and have been making us proud for nearly a decade.

Responsible for organising and running the Annual ECS Symposium, the ECS Committee also make a real difference in the lives of our ECS membership by suggesting benefits, grants and activities for all early and mid-career scientists.

Our ECS Committee members get involved with all aspects of the Society including policy, social media, awards, meetings, communications and welfare.

Joining the committee is a wonderful way to get more involved with SfAM, make incredible friends and build a network of contacts that will stay with you throughout your career. You will also gain valuable experience, transferable skills and most importantly have a lot of fun.

The ECS Committee typically hold three to four meetings per year, depending upon initiatives, activities or events and the minimum commitment we expect from you would be:

  • Attend committee meetings via google hangout/in person/skype etc
  • Take a proactive role in organising and promoting the ECS Symposium
  • Join the ECS Committee Whatsapp Group
  • Be enthusiastic and contribute
  • Be passionate about microbiology

At this stage we are only looking for you to register your interest in joining the ECS Committee and ask that you fill in the form below and provide us with a name, email address and location. We will contact you shortly and any new members will be elected to the Committee in July 2019.
