Call for Nominations to the JSC 2014-2015

Posted by Emma O'Dwyer •


The current ISPP Junior Scholars Committee (JSC) is now accepting nominations to the 2014-2015 JSC. By working with members of the ISPP, organizing events at the annual meeting, and maintaining several online sites that facilitate communication across the discipline, the JSC is an integral part of the ISPP community. This is an excellent opportunity to meet and work with other members of ISPP, provide input into the JSC, and enhance your curriculum vitae with international committee experience.

Open positions in the JSC are described below, with the number of positions in parentheses:  

Chair-Elect (1): Working under the current chair, this position is responsible for learning the ins and outs of the JSC, in preparation for taking the lead the following year. Duties as chair include writing reports to the Governing Council, overseeing the junior scholar budget, and representing the interests of junior scholars in ISPP. This position includes three years of service to JSC; as chair-elect, chair, and the final year of service is in the capacity of chair ex-officio.

Mentoring Program Coordinator (1): Arranges the mentoring tea organized at the annual meeting.

Professional Development Coordinators (1): Arranges the publishing and career development roundtables for the annual meeting.

Newsletter Editor (1): Solicits articles and announcements for the Junior Scholars newsletter that is published twice a year.

Web Resources Coordinator (2): Manages all web-related JSC archives and responsible for updating the JSC Blog, Facebook and Twitter pages.

How to Apply:

To apply, email a curriculum vita and a brief (150 word) statement of your interest in the JSC and the JSC position(s) that are of most interest to you to by 30 April 2014.

All JSC members are encouraged - but not required - to attend ISPP’s annual meeting. Each nominee will be considered for an anticipated two-year term (except chair-elect which is a three year commitment). To make our committee more representative of ISPP’s membership, we are looking for representatives from every continent.

A selection committee comprised of JSC members and Governing Council members will review the applications. The 2014-2015 JSC will be announced by the end of May with the new term beginning at the end of the annual meeting in July. Feel free to email us with any questions at The current JSC members are happy to assist you in any way possible. Thank you for your interest and good luck!
