Council vacancies

Volunteering as a Trustee on the RSB Council is one of the best ways to help influence how the Royal Society of Biology delivers its charitable aims and acts as a unified voice for biology. This year there were two vacancies on Council, one open to Individual Members of the RSB and one to representatives of Member Organisations. To stand as a Trustee of the RSB you must be nominated by your peers. The election has now finished and a full list of current Trustees is available.
