Section Chair: George Littlejohn (University of Exeter)
SEB+ works closely with the SEB’s scientific Plant, Animal and Cell Sections in a four-way exchange, with the aim of creating an organisation that acts together to the benefit of its members and, ultimately, the whole of society itself. SEB+ is a cross-cutting section that provides a forum for experimental biologists to:
Our Meetings and Activities
SEB+ Sessions at SEB Brighton 2016
Upcoming SEB+ Symposium: Creativity in Science Teaching (12-14 December 2016)
The activities of SEB+ are not mutually exclusive, but rather interconnect and enrich the work of the Animal, Plant and Cell Sections.
Each year we run an exciting programme of events at the SEB Annual Meeting.
We also run regular symposia and satellite meetings on topical subjects such as innovation and creativity in teaching, science communication training and supporting the careers of PhD students and early career scientists.
By contributing into SEB’s scientific research meetings, SEB+ also adds value to the delegate experience, in a bioscience-focused setting. The interests and expertise of the members of the SEB+ Section Committee reflect these overlapping interests.
Please get in contact
if you’d like to learn more about or get involved in our
activities. We look forward to hearing from you.
“As an early career scientist, I am well aware of the challenges and difficulties you can face in order to pursue a career in academia. What I have appreciated most from SEB is the engagement and support I have had from more experienced scientists. Sarah Blackford [Head of Education & Public Affairs at the SEB] in particular has taken me under her wing and given me one-on-one sessions to discuss my career prospects and CV. Because I enjoy the teaching and supervision side of academia Sarah introduced me to her far reaching network – so I now have access to academic teaching programs from around the world.”
