Join the Global Young Academy!
The Global Young Academy is looking for new members to join us!
Applications are sought from young, independent scholars who combine the highest level of research excellence with a demonstrated passion for delivering impact.
The call for applications is open to all scholars working in any research-based discipline, including the sciences, medicine, engineering, social sciences, the arts and humanities.
Applicants should be in the early years of their independent careers. The majority of GYA members are aged 30-40, and the typical period from completion of a PhD or similar degree is 3-10 years. Applicants falling significantly outside these ranges should provide a motivation letter and may be considered under exceptional circumstances.
More information on how to apply and our online application form can be found here.
GYA releases Statement on Healthy Aging
In May, young scientists and researchers from more than 50 different countries came together at the Global Young Academy’s 8th Annual General Meeting and International Conference for Young Scientists in Pattaya, Thailand, to discuss the challenges and possibilities for sustainable and healthy aging.
After compiling the ideas discussed during their conference, GYA members have released the Conference’s Statement (available here).
This GYA Statement emphasises the need to re-frame issues surrounding aging and to recognise and foster links between global and local developments.
More information is available here.
