Dear ITHACA Partners,
Please find below an information on behalf of ESHG-Y which is intended for all the trainees in Human Genetics. We would be very grateful if you could forward this e-mail to each of them.
Applications are open to join the ESHG-Young (ESHG-Y) committee!
The ESHG-Y was created in June 2019 from the need to have represented the ESHG trainees’ interests. The ESHG-Y committee aims to represent the next generation of Human Geneticists in the ESHG structure and open the discussion to topics of their interest.
This year we are electing 4 new members to join the 3 members (2020-2021 generation) of the ESHG-Y for a 2-year mandate.
If you are 35 years old or younger and/or a genetics trainee (and a member of the ESHG), we urge you to apply for the positions. It is your chance to represent the ESHG-Y community and to work on projects related to their interests. Only ESHG trainee members can apply (please check if you have paid your annual fee; you can do this online at https://www.eshg.org/join0.0.html).
To apply, send us a one-page motivation letter and a one-page CV to be shared with the community. Those you are willing can also share a 2min video (optional) describing who they are and why they want to be part of this project. The contents will be shared on social media (https://www.facebook.com/groups/young.geneticist/ and https://www.facebook.com/ESHG.Young).
Send the above to firstname.lastname@example.org until 16th May 2021.
The ESHG trainee members will elect the candidates through an online voting system before the ESHG 2021, and the new committee members will be announced during the virtual conference.
ESHG-Y: Who are we?
The ESHG-Y (a short version for the ESHG-Young) is a branch of the ESHG, and it was established in June 2019 from the need of having represented the interests of the ESHG members younger than 35 years of age and/or still in training. We share the same mission as the ESHG, but more specifically, we intend to find a way for the young generation to be heard, understood, and empowered. The ESHG-Y Committee complies with seven international members who work in close relation with the aim to represent the next generation of Human Geneticists in the ESHG structure and open the discussion to topics of their interest.
Thank you for your attention.
