Call for applicants – YHS Board

The Young Hydrologic Society (YHS) is a bottom-up initiative to stimulate the interaction and active participation of young hydrologists within the hydrological community.

Founded in October 2012 the YHS is currently run by a team of enthusiastic MScs, PhD students and post-docs from several universities across the world. The YHS board members manage the day to day YHS activities: organising conference sessions, creating blog posts and running the YHS twitter account.

YHS is organised as a group of committees supported by the president and secretary. Each board member usually serves a two-year term.

The following committees have open positions:

Secretary: The secretary is responsible to work closely with the Chair to plan meetings, activities, take minutes during the meetings, and help the coordination of different YHS activities with other board members. 1 vacancy.

Blog: The members of the committee invite contributions to the blog and serve as editors and reviewers. There is a close connection to the EGU Hydrological Sciences, HEPEX and AGU H3S blogs in the form of joint blog posts. Up to 1 vacancy.

National Branches: The members of the committee support new and established national YHS branches and national representatives where necessary. 2 vacancies.

Outreach: The members of the committee manage the YHS platforms on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. That includes sharing YHS news, early career events and job opportunities. 1 vacancy.

Conferences: The members of the committee coordinate YHS-led networking events, short courses and sessions at national and international conferences. For that it can rely on the support of the entire board and the EGU Early Career Representative. Up to 4 vacancies.

We welcome applications from all Early Career Hydrologists. If you have any questions about the positions you are welcome to contact current or former chairs.
