The Society of Biology has partnered with the Biochemical Society to offer all Biochemical Society members a discount of 50% on their first two year’s membership subscription.
The future of biology
The Society of Biology provides a much needed single voice for the life sciences. By uniting individual life scientists, learned societies and a range of businesses, higher education institutions and other not-for-profit bodies, they are able to speak with legitimacy on behalf of over 80,000 biologists from all walks of life. They aim to be inclusive and to work across the breadth of areas that biology covers, but cannot do this alone - active involvement from their Members and Fellows is critical.
Their philosophy is one of joint working, sharing and partnership and they would like to invite you to become a member of the Society to help meet the challenges ahead. In return for your commitment they can offer you an attractive member benefits package including:
- Exclusive access to their credits-based CPD programme and professional awards, which enhance the recognition, status and employability of members
- Eligibility to use post-nominal letters to demonstrate your status as a professional Biologist
- A free copy of The Biologist, their bimonthly magazine, covering the full richness and diversity of Biology
- Informative monthly e-bulletins to help keep you up to date on developments, events and other key issues
- Professional networking opportunities via local and national Society of Biology events and their network of over 12,000 biologists for those interested in discussing current issues in biology and sharing ideas
- Individual opportunities to input to ongoing consultations and help shape the future of Biology.
- 20% discount on all life science titles from leading academic publishers Wiley Blackwell and Oxford University Press
Members are eligible to use the post-nominal letters (AMSB, MSB or FSB) which signify to all that you are a professional biologist, well qualified and subject to a rigorous code of conduct. Holders of these letters are committed to the advancement of the biological sciences and maintain high standards of competence and ethical behaviour.
Membership gives you access to a wide and diverse network of biologists. You can contact other members by searching their online directory in the members’ area of the website or by attending one of the Society of Biology’s local or national events.
The Society is frequently consulted on biological issues by government departments, funding bodies, industry and other national and international organisations. They aim to be inclusive and to work across the breadth of areas that biology covers, but they cannot do this alone - active involvement from the bioscience community is critical.
The Society has grades of membership suitable for all levels of skills and qualifications. See their website for full details of membership grades.
