The 2008 BES Ministerial Shadowing Scheme

Applications are now invited for the 2008 BES Ministerial Shadowing Scheme.
Eight ecologists will be given the opportunity to shadow politicians for several days in London, Edinburgh or Brussels, to be followed by a wrap-up workshop in London. Joan Ruddock MP, Minister for Climate Change Biodiversity and Waste at the UK parliament, John Bowis, MEP and Linda McAvan, MEP, have all agreed to take part. Dr Ian Bainbridge, Chief Ecological Advisor for Scotland, will also host an ecologist at the Scottish Government.

This fantastic opportunity is available to current members of the BES, based at an academic institution or equivalent body and who completed their PhD no more than eight years ago. The deadline for applications is Friday 18 April.
