Could you be the new Early Career Member Representative?

17th June 2019

The British Society of Soil Science has an exciting new opportunity available for the Chair of the Early Career Members (ECR) group. Our current ECR Chair Dan Evans announced at the recent ECR Conference in Sheffield that "the role has been the highlight of his career to date and was a wonderful opportunity to promote soil science to those at the beginning of their professional life".

You will act as the Chair of the ECR group currently supported by six regional heads. Working with the BSSS Presidential team, you will represent the ECR community at (up to) four Council meetings per year in locations across the U.K. (expenses paid). With conference management support from the BSSS office, you would also lead on the organisation of the scientific programme of the biannual, two day, ECR Conference.

If you wish to be considered for this exciting post then please provide a 200 word statement stating why you think you would make an excellent Chair of the ECR group and what you will bring the early career community to take it to the next level!

Application deadline is 5pm on Monday 8th July 2019 and should be sent to
