ASN Diversity Committee Call for Members

Posted on by ASN Diversity Committee

The ASN Diversity Committee (DC) seeks to add 1-2 new members starting in January 2024. The DC works to promote diversity, equity, and inclusiveness to enhance the study of evolution, ecology, and behavior and to foster the career of its developing scientists. We pursue initiatives that support marginalized groups, which include helping to create an inclusive, accessible environment at the Evolution conference, the stand-alone ASN meeting, and our field in general. Members serve a 3-year term, and the committee typically holds two meetings a month to discuss ideas and work on projects collectively.

Applicants must be members of ASN (join or renew your membership here: and have attended at least one Evolution conference or ASN stand-alone meeting in the past.

We welcome participation from members of the community from all backgrounds and all countries, across all career stages (including graduate students and postdocs), and in all career paths. We are particularly interested in recruiting a graduate student and a tenured professor for the next cycle. We are looking for new perspectives and ideas. Applicants should submit an application by December 15, 2023. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at
