Call for Editorial Board Members: shaping Immunology News

Offering a mix of recent Society news, synopses of cutting-edge immunology research and feature articles about our members’ ventures, this magazine showcases the latest developments and hot topics in the world of immunology. As the BSI membership magazine, Immunology News is an important channel that enables our mission to be a focal hub for the immunology community.

We are currently renewing our Editorial Advisory Board and are seeking BSI members to get involved in shaping the content pipeline through offering their ideas and commissioning articles.

Immunology News aims to not only highlight how we’re supporting our members and representing immunology on a wider stage, but also to amplify the voice of our membership. With this in mind, the magazine’s Editorial Advisory Board must represent the breadth of our membership to be able to authentically provide a platform for our members’ interests and areas that matter to them.

Are you interested in contributing to the development of the BSI membership magazine? If so, we’d love to hear from you!

We welcome expressions of interest from members from all membership categories. As part of the Immunology News Editorial Advisory Board you will:

  • Have the chance to share ideas of topics that matter to you, for example around careers or science innovation, and bring forward proposals of potential authors and pieces to build the content pipeline for 2023
  • Contribute to sparking conversations within our community through content that inspires, educates and engages
  • Develop knowledge and skills in commissioning content for a printed publication, as well as the publishing process of a Society magazine

We are interested in recruiting members within all areas of immunology as we are committed to creating an Editorial Advisory Board that truly represents the diversity of our community. We are particularly interested in members from:

  • Different areas across the UK and beyond, especially north of London and including the devolved nations
  • The spectrum of immunology, both in terms of research areas and of sectors, such as industry and clinical
  • A range of career stages, such as postdocs and early career researchers
  • Underrepresented communities in science and those interested in building a fairer, more inclusive immunology community

All of the Society’s work and the production of Immunology News is made possible through of the support and enthusiasm of our members – a big thank you for reading, sharing and contributing with your experiences.

If you’re interested in making a difference and supporting the Society’s mission through its magazine, please email an expression of interest to Teresa Prados, Managing Editor of Immunology News at by Friday 13 January outlining why you’d like to be part of the Editorial Advisory Board and what you feel you could contribute (max. 200 words).
