GLEON Graduate Student Association (GSA)

The GSA represents students in GLEON leadership and governance and is open to all students and postdoctoral researchers. All students who join GLEON are considered members of the GSA.

  • Chair and Co-Chair: The GSA is chaired by two graduate student GLEON members chosen by the GLEON Steering Committee. The chair has a vote in the Steering Committee and the Collaborative Climate Committee.

  • GSA subcommittees: The GSA has other opportunities for students within the GLEON network, including serving on communications or poster session subcommittees. 

Other Leadership Opportunities

Host an All Hands' GLEON Meeting, a Working Group workshop or meeting, or a session at a conference.

GLEON All Hands' Meetings are hosted by GLEON site members and organized by Program (Meeting) Committees. These committees are faciliated by the SC co-chairs and populated with meeting hosts, SC members and the general GLEON community. Other opportunities for hosting meetings include leading small, focused Working Group meetings between All Hands' Meetings, and by hosting GLEON gatherings, sessions or workshops at national or international meetings (e.g. ASLO, SIL, etc.).

Lead or co-lead a Working Group.
The bulk of GLEON All Hands' Meetings are invested in Working Groups, initiated and led by GLEON members who communicate both electronically and in person between All Hands' Meetings. Members are self-organized at both the group and sub-team levels, keeping the group efforts on-task and productive.

Moderate/Facilitate at an All Hands Meeting.
GLEON meetings are always led by a number of active GLEON members in a voluntary, dynamic and collaborative fashion. If you are interested in moderating or facilitating at an All Hands' Meeting, get in touch with SC co-chairs.

Create GLEON Science deliverables.
Manuscript and software development are led by motivated GLEON individuals. All GLEON members are encouraged to make intellectual and data contributions to science deliverables on active projects, taking the exploratory brainstorms not only to a collaborative process but to scientific significant products.

Education and Outreach.
Connect with communities outside of GLEON (e.g. citizen-scientists, classrooms, labs, etc.) or generate outreach/educational content for such community activities. Currently, little educational or outreach content for network science exists. If you use network data in outreach, classrooms or labs, we welcome you to share your experiences and/or content with other GLEON members.


**New opportunities are always emerging. If you have a good idea for something you want to do or lead in GLEON or if you would like more information on one of the opportunities on this page, please feel free to contact us.
