 <https://app.globalyoungacademy.net/>The GYA membership call for 2021 is
open now. You are welcome to submit your application before 15 September
2020, 10 pm UTC.

Applications are sought from young, independent scholars who combine the
highest level of research excellence with a demonstrated passion for
delivering impact.

*The GYA is a global organisation that places a high value on
its diversity. We encourage applications from all qualified candidates. All
applicants receive consideration and will not be discriminated against with
regard to race, colour, ethnicity, religion, creed, sex, marital status,
ancestry, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, physical or
mental disabilities, or other factors. We especially encourage women and
applicants from different minority groups, and from diverse disciplines
including the natural, physical and social sciences as well as the arts and
humanities and people working in government, industry, and non-governmental
sectors to apply. *

*Research** fields**:* The call is open to all scholars working in any
research-based discipline, including the natural, physical and social
sciences, as well as the arts and humanities.

Excellence: Applicants must be able to demonstrate a high level of
excellence in their discipline, ascertained by a proven track record and
expected future achievements. Moreover, applicants must demonstrate a clear
commitment to making a difference in society. PhD or equivalent is a
requirement for applicants.

Impact: The Global Young Academy is committed to a broad range of
programmes around the world to support young scholars, promote science to a
broad audience, engage in policy debate, and foster international and
interdisciplinary collaboration. Applicants should provide evidence of
interest or experience in one or more of these areas.

Age/career point: Applicants should be in the early to middle years of
their independent careers, i.e. approximately 7 years from PhD and aged
30-40. Applicants falling outside these ranges are still invited to send
their applications with a justification for why they should be considered.

Expectations: Each GYA member is expected to attend the GYA Annual General
Meeting each year and is also expected to actively contribute to one or
more of the organisation’s programmes, which include participation in
policy development, promotion of National Young Academies, supporting
science outreach and education at the national and international levels,
and the young scientist ambassador programme. The GYA is an active
organisation, and being a member requires a time commitment on each
member’s part. In the event that applicants are selected as new GYA
members, they should be available to attend the next Annual General Meeting,
which is scheduled for 16 – 21 May 2021 in Japan.
