Join the SSE Graduate Student Advisory Council!
The SSE Graduate Student Advisory Council (GSAC) is in search of two additional student members. Applicants should be organized, outgoing, and possess leadership skills. The GSAC represents student interests to the Council and facilitates interaction among students and between students and mentors. Our goal is to become a source of information for students to use both during their graduate school career and as they make career transitions.
Developing the detailed duties of the GSAC is a work in progress, so expectations are still loosely defined. The primary role of all GSAC members is to communicate with the SSE's graduate student membership and liaise with the SSE Council on their behalf. One GSAC member will be chosen by SSE Council to attend Council meetings. Secondary roles will include establishing and maintaining social media to facilitate networking among SSE student members and assisting in review of Rosemary Grant Award applications. Other secondary roles are yet to be established, and ideas are welcome! Each student will serve a 2 year term.
To apply, please submit a one page statement of interest, including the ideas you would like to bring to council, and a copy of your CV to: GSAC@evolutionsociety.org by April 15, 2017. New members will be chosen by the current GSAC members.
