Join a SIG Committee

Our 19 Special Interest Groups each have Committees made up of volunteers who help contribute to their group’s activities

Our 19 volunteer Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide a focus of activity in specific areas of ecology and organise meetings and events throughout the year. Their Committees are made up of voluntary leadership roles, from Secretaries to policy representatives, to social media positions, who all work together to organise events and reach out to their communities. You can find out more about our other SIGs here.

Invasion Science Group

The BES Invasion Science SIG is looking for an enthusiastic, early-career invasion scientist to take on the role of secretary, to move the SIG forward and build on its recent successes.

The main aim of the SIG is to provide space for communication and collaboration between researchers, practitioners and policy-makers in invasion science. The voluntary secretary role is a great opportunity for an early-career invasion scientist to network with others in the field, build new research links and collaborations and to obtain valuable experience in organization and leadership.

If you are interested in taking up this role, please contact the Invasion Science SIG at with a short explanation of your interest, and a CV.
