A new opportunity: Call for proposals to establish and run FEBS Research Division Rooms on the FEBS Network


The FEBS Network aims to provide a valuable online international forum for scientists working in the molecular and cellular life sciences, enabling them to share advice, news and insights, and connect and collaborate – with the ultimate goal of helping to advance progress in these research areas.

One important long-term goal of the FEBS Network is to provide focused online forums for scientists interested in particular research topics or techniques in the molecular life sciences. These research forums will be offered as curated 'Research Division Rooms', each providing a shared space for expert-led comment, insight and discussion on a specific research area and connections between scientists working to understand similar research questions.

The FEBS Network Working Group now invites proposals from researchers to establish and run such a Research Division Room as the ‘curator’. The proposer should be a member of a FEBS Constituent Society or a FEBS Advanced Course organizer. Curators will be responsible for recruiting experts for their room, encouraging posting and interaction from experts, overseeing content standards, and also creating content and engaging with room members. For more details including how to apply, see the Research Division Rooms page on the FEBS website.

The FEBS Network Working Group looks forward to receiving proposals by April 1st, 2018.
