Call for applications for new Steering Committee Members for the Steppe Sisters Network
Monday 28th June 2021
Following the exciting news that we have received funding from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (https://www.humboldt-foundation.de/.../sponsored...), we are expanding our steering committee. We are therefore looking to you to nominate yourselves or your colleagues for the roles!
The new steering committee members will help us organise and deliver several exciting new initiatives enabled by the Humboldt award. In particular, we are looking for steering committee members to:
-Help plan and organise our upcoming conference in Tashkent
-Run, and produce content for, our social media
-Organise and implement online seminars, reading groups or training workshops
Any member of the Steppe Sisters is eligible, and we are looking to expand the committee with a diverse group of people representing different disciplines, career stages and experiences. We expect that a role on the steering committee would require a commitment of c. 1 hour per week. The benefits include travel to, and accommodation at, our conference in Tashkent, and a useful addition to your CV!
To nominate yourself or someone else, please send us the following information:
-Name and institutional affiliation/role
-A 200 word or less statement telling us how you think you (or your colleague) could help the Steppe Sisters grow!
The deadline for expressions of interest for the steering committee is July 31. Applications will be accepted in both English and Russian. Please send your documents to Dr. Kristen Hopper (firstname.lastname@example.org)
