Early Careers Representative: Dan Evans
This forum is a platform for student members to communicate within the early career member community. We hope this will form an open dialogue between student members, enhancing communication and creating an opportunity to celebrate the hard work of the student cohort. So, please feel free to post your soil related interests/publications/conference attendance/grants awarded/ events/advice etc. We look forward to reading them!
Your ideas and help are always welcome- we would like to know how you think the society should evolve for students or if you would like to get involved please comment here or contact Dan directly.
