Join the Committee

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 invasion@britishecologicalsociety.org with a short explanation of your interest, and a CV.

Aims

  • Exchange knowledge in invasion science across taxonomic groups and ecosystems
  • Increase interactions between research- and management-focused invasion science
  • Support early-career invasion scientists
