Current Vacancies on Challenger Council


There is just one  vacancy on the Challenger Council replacing existing members rotating off at the end of their term. In each case the usual period for serving on the council is three years, although some Councillors extend this period. As a member of the Council, you join the managing board of Society which usually meets four times per year in London, although it is likely that more or these will become remote meetings in future. You would contribute to all decisions made on behalf of the Society by the council.   

We are very keen to hear from enthusuiastic scientists from the membership who might like to joint the council to help steer the Society and its activities. Your opportunity to make a difference!

  • Web Develepment - we seek a member to take on a more technical role on Council, maintaining the Web-based information system as the central point of information for the Society. The system is hosted by a Domain management company and you would work closely with them to ensure systems are working fully. Developing new features is part of this portfolio keeping the Society's members informed of new events and awards. 
If you are interested in joining the Challenger Society council to perform in this roles, or would like further information, then please email our Honorary Secretary Prof. Mattias Green ( ). We do hope to hear from you.
