Global Young Academy - Call for Membership

The Call for Membership 2014 of the Global Young Academy is now open.

As the “voice of young scien­tists around the world,” the Global Young Academy(GYA) aims to empower and mobilize young scientists to address issues of particu­lar importance to early career scientists. Cur­rent working groups focus on improving Early Scientific Careers, Science-Society Dialogue, Sci­ence-Education, and Interdisciplinary Re­search.

Members are elected for five year terms, after which they will move to alumni status. All members are expected to actively contribute to the organization’s goals and activities. They may participate in international science policy development, promote the establishment of national young academies (NYA) and coordinate their cooperation and exchange, support science education at the international level and the young scientist ambassador program.

The full call and application form can be found here in the  "Membership" section of the GYA website.

The closing date for the receipt of applications is 11 pm UTC, Sunday 28 September 2014. No late entries will be accepted.
