The Distributed System of Scientific Collections (DiSSCo) is looking to
fill two very crucial advisory boards that will help driving and guiding
the Research Infrastructure going forward:

the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), and the Technical Advisory Board (TAB).

Their mission is to provide expert consultation services in all areas
related to the scientific objectives and the technical sphere of DiSSCo,
thus shaping DiSSCo and its portfolio of services based on geological and
biological diversity data as well as its implementation to the benefit of
the scientific community and the society at large. As highlighted by the
recent global assessment by the IPBES, biodiversity data on a scale and
precision that DiSSCo can deliver is absolutely crucial for protecting our
ecosystems. Membership in these boards will therefore touch at the heart of
what DiSSCo can become and how it will implement its services to the
benefit of the scientific community and the society at large.

If you wish to be involved in the development of these data-driven services
and if you are motivated by building a research infrastructure that will
bring geo and biodiversity data from natural science collections to the
21st century, then please apply!
