Early Career Council
Comprised of early career scientists from academia, research, industry and policy the Early Career Council (ECC) provides an invaluable resource to members at the beginning of their career journey. It offers advice, tailored support and training including regular workshops/webinars where participants can hone their skills on topics such as academic writing best practice, how to get published and obtaining funding. The Early Career Council ensures that our early career members have a voice within the Society.

The BSAS Buddy Up Scheme allows those at a similar stage in their career to meet on a more informal basis to share experiences, act as a sounding board and offer each other more general support.
Making the transition from student to professional can be overwhelming, but a BSAS mentor can help you successfully navigate your way, as you take your first fledgling steps into the world of animal science.
We regularly post job and career development opportunities.
Animal science is a diverse and multi-faceted field that offers a career that you will find stimulating, sometimes challenging, but ultimately very rewarding. Animal science encompasses the scientific disciplines underpinning the management of farm, companion, wild and captive animals. These include, but aren’t limited to, physiology, biochemistry, nutrition, genetics, health, behaviour and welfare.
We are incredibly passionate about championing animal science and technology at all stages, which includes making sure that those who desire a career in animal science have all the tools needed to achieve their career goals.
