Champions Scheme recruitment now open

01 March 2024


We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting members onto our Champions Scheme.

The Champions Scheme is essential in helping to raise awareness of the Microbiology Society and microbiology. Champions do this in their local area by initiating activities and events of their own or participating in Society-led activities.

Funding, guidance and promotion is provided by the Society to support Champions to organise activities and an online community of other Champions allows them to network with microbiologists all over the world.

Becoming a Champion allows members to showcase their work, expand their networks and further their professional development.

You can find out more about the Scheme, our Champions and their activities via the Society Champions webpage.

We operate two recruitment periods annually to help ensure we can provide a thorough onboarding process that allows new Champions to feel confident in their role. The first recruitment period of the year is now open and the deadline to apply to join the Scheme is Tuesday 30 April 2024.

As part of the recruitment process, new Champions will also need to attend a training session on Thursday 23 May 2024.

You can register your interest in becoming a Champion through our registration form or email [email protected] to find out more.
