Develop your professional skills and boost your profile by volunteering with SULSA. We will have a variety of opportunities around creativity, organisation, marketing, and policy. Or you can suggest your own activities!

Volunteering with SULSA

Volunteering allows you to engage and influence SULSA activities whilst developing your professional skills. These opportunities are designed to increase the visibility of our members and their research, give researchers experience in organising and coordinating activities, have their voice heard, and enjoy being creative.

International Awareness Days

Write a blog, create social media content, or takeover our social media for a day to celebrate an official awareness day related to your research.


SULSA Spotlight

Get featured across our Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, and appear in our monthly newsletter. A great way to boost your research and profile in Scotland.

Social Media Takeover

Takeover our social media for a day and help us raise awareness about how varied research in life sciences can be. Attending a conference or recently published a paper? Use our social media takeover to talk about it!


Policy Report

We want to lobby and influence policy on behalf of our members, and we cannot do this without your input. Prepare a report, or lead a team to prepare a report, on a topic that is important to you or your research.

Careers Database Profile

Have you had a non-traditional career path, left academia, or transitioned into life sciences from another sector? We’d love to include your journey on our post academic careers database.
