Each academic year, we nominate a University of Cambridge student member to join CUBG’s Syndicate, to ensure a wide range of views are represented.
The student member will ideally have some direct involvement with, and understanding of the Garden through research, learning or a community activity.
Interested students are encouraged to email CUBG Director, Beverley Glover (email@example.com) with a brief explanation of why they would like to be nominated and a short CV.
The closing date for expressions of interest is Friday 14 October 2022.
