Do you have an interest in growing your professional development and advocating on behalf of the biological and biomedical sciences?

In December 2019, the FASEB Board of Directors approved the addition of three new positions on the Board and three new positions on the Science Policy Committee for early-career researchers (ECRs). The inaugural three ECRs began their terms in July 2020. Subsequent ECR positions on the FASEB Board of Directors and Science Policy Committee will continue to be filled in a staggered manner in the years to come. Candidates interested in being considered should begin the process by inquiring with their scientific society regarding the timeline and nomination instructions.
