This is an ideal role for a postgraduate student, early or mid career researcher based in Sydney that is keen to become an active member of the SBA community.
Please let us know of your interest by filling out this form by the 31st of November.
We review applications by then and will get in touch with you.

We are the Sydney node of the Synthetic Biology Australasia society (SBA) with membersfrom across Sydney's Universities and Synbio start-ups. We are focusing on growing an inclusive local SynBio community and organise 2-3 events per year for everyone to network, learn and create impact. We are interested in all synbio related research areas whether environmental, medical, agricultural, food, manufacturing and energy, in academia and industry.
Looking back at over two years of SBA-Sydney since inception we are truly grateful to our sponsors the SBA, NEB, CoESB and Twist/Decode Science who helped catering our events and providing gifts (inlc. many DNA synthesis vouchers) and merchandise for winners of our many event competitions. We are grateful for our generous beer and zero-alcohol beer sponsors from The Flying Wombats and Eden Brew and special thanks to our amazing speakers and YOU our SBA-Sydney members who made the events such great success.
As above, register your interest here if you are keen to engage and lead the SBA-Sydney node to ensure the fun and impact of our growing community continues.
