Become a Member of the Steering Committee

GASB is managed by the Steering Committee (SC) which is elected once a year. The purpose of this committee is to provide strategic direction and support to the activities promoted by the association.

We are interested in recruiting members from the Synbio community to take part in the SC.

As a committee member you will play a key role in the decision-making processes and energizing of our community. You will participate in planning and implementing activities and events defined by the committee as well as helping to organize our annual Conference.

Serving on our campaign, the steering committee is a great way to get actively involved in our community, to sharpen your leadership skills, to network and extend your personal connections as well as to contribute to the future’s development and progress of Synthetic Biology in Germany.

If you are interested in becoming part of the SC, please send us your CV + application to this email address. In your application we would like to you to answer the following questions:

What is Synthetic Biology for you? How would you define it?

What are your skills? Where do you see yourself in GASB?

Why do you want to become a part of the SC?


Of course every member of the steering committee will be automatically become a regular member of the association.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
