Call for Nominations to the Board of Trustees
The British Society for Research on Ageing (BSRA) is seeking nominations to appoint to their Board of Trustees.
The BSRA is a charitable incorporated organisation that was formed as a Society in 1939 by researchers studying the biology of ageing. It works to promote and support research on the causes and effects of ageing. In particular, it seeks to bring researchers on the biology of ageing from different fields and different locations together for a common purpose. As part of this mission, it organises an annual conference that brings researchers together from across the world. It is also engaged in education and outreach, and funds research into the biology of ageing.
David Weinkove has recently taken over as Chair and is particularly focussing on raising awareness of the BSRA across the breadth of the UK research community in ageing, both within academic settings and in industry, with the aim of providing a strong evidence base in a fast moving world of innovation in the field.
Trustees are volunteers that coordinate and manage the finances, strategy, communications, fundraising, scientific meetings and membership of the Society. New Trustees are elected by ballot of the members and are appointed for a minimum term of service of three years.
We are looking for Trustees with skills and/or experience from across a wide field of ageing biology that could support the Society in our strategic priorities. We particularly welcome applications from Early Career Researchers (ECRs) as we seek to increase ECR representation at board level.
To nominate yourself for election to the Board please send in a 2-page CV and short paragraph outlining how your skills/experience could support the society.
Please send your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for nominations is midnight on Friday 22nd April 2022.
