Please email Trynke Hoejstra with a brief personal profile and description of why you want to join the committee.

Closing date: 31 January 2022

The CBN is a rebranded committee replacing the former Mid-Career Committee (MCN), that aims to support the needs of (self-selected) mid-career members of ISBNPA. In addition, CBN aims to identify the unique perspective of mid-career and locate opportunities for education, funding, mentorship and networking. Also, CBN aims to provide a representative voice for mid-career members of ISBNPA, identify, recruit and retain potential members, facilitate communication between members and to collaborate across ISBNPA committees for education, networking and membership opportunities. Ultimately, CBN is an opportunity to facilitate the natural transition from early career to senior/leadership positions.

CBN focuses on six main themes; management and leadership, networking, research methodology and analytical techniques, science advocacy and impact
