Students

Welcome to the 2023/2024 School Year!

This page will continue to grow and expand throughout the school year. Check back for updates while we continue to work on exciting opportunities for biology students!

Why should I join as a Student Member?

Becoming a Student Member of the ASPB is the first step in a career in biology and shows employers your dedication to your profession. Participating in ASPB activities, such as professional development workshops, helps broaden a biologist’s skills. It provides opportunities to meet other members of the ASPB, which can form the basis for a biologist’s lifetime network of professional colleagues.

Student members receive regular communications from the ASPB. Monthly electronic bulletins and a regularly published magazine serve to keep members up to date on professional development opportunities, member benefits and advancements within the Society. Students receive discounts on professional development opportunities as well as a member discounts from our partners. The ASPB maintains an electronic job board where employers post notices of jobs available in the field of biology.

This is the very beginning of the ASPB Student Webpage. We will be slowly growing this page for students to have a “one-stop-shop” for everything student-related through the ASPB. We want to include the following on this page; 

  • Student ASPB membership information 
  • Mentorship opportunities
  • Student events hosted by the ASPB
  • Student events hosted by other parties
  • Links to post secondary courses that the ASPB identifies as Biology (for ASPB credits)
  • Links to biology related societies and clubs
  • Student job postings and volunteer opportunities
  • Blog 
  • Calendar of events
