Opportunities at the British Ecological Society
We are currently seeking an exceptional leader within the ecological community to head the Board of Trustees. The BES is a thriving, successful learned Society and we are looking for someone who has the vision and enthusiasm to take the organisation further.
We are currently seeking a leader within the ecological community to become one of the two Vice Presidents of the Society. After several successful years in the role and chairing the BES Grants Committee, Professor Rosie Hails will be stepping down at the end of her term of office and we are seeking a replacement for her. The BES Grants Committee awards £400k of funding per annum.
We are seeking a new member of our Board of Trustees. The BES Board of Trustees is the governing body for the Society, setting and maintaining the vision of the BES and developing a long-term strategy. The Board also creates and monitors policies to govern Society, ensures compliance with the governing document, ensures accountability and makes sure resources are used effectively.
We are looking for people to get involved by providing feedback and advice on a new project to facilitate information sharing in the ecological community. Our vision is to create an interactive online platform that allows applied ecologists – researchers and practitioners – to browse and search a wide variety of applied ecological content including grey literature reports, journal article summaries, and open access articles.
