PS Student Rep Applications

The Paleontological Society is soliciting applications for a Student Representative to Council. 

Eligibility: We encourage applications from paleontology graduate students who are early-mid stage in their graduate programs from all backgrounds and institutions, particularly those that have historically been under-represented on the Paleontological Society Council.

The Role: Student Representatives serve as voices for student needs in the Society and play leading roles in student activities including organizing student events at the annual Geological Society of America conference. Student Representatives are further encouraged to develop and lead new student initiatives. In this role, students gain knowledge of the inner workings of an international organization and experience in professional service.

The selected Student Representative (who will start their role in the fall of 2023) will join current Student Representative Sam Ocon and serve a two-year term (Fall 2023–Fall 2025). Student Representatives attend two virtual Council meetings per year (one during fall and the other during spring).

Application Requirements:

Please fill out the google form and provide each question with long-answer responses (at least one paragraph per question) to be considered for this position.

The form can be accessed here:

When you complete the form, please provide the email address of your nominator or letter writer, and an invitation to submit their letter will automatically be sent. Please confirm with your letter writer that they have received confirmation of submission by the deadline below.

The deadline for consideration is February 12, 2023.

The new Student Representative will be selected in March 2023. Please feel free to contact the current Student Representatives, Sam Ocon and Jood Al Aswad, at [email protected] with additional questions or if you experience any difficulty with the submission forms.
