Charge: The role of the Junior Scientist Advancement Committee (JSAC) is to ensure that junior members (defined as Student Members and Postdoctoral Members; see Bylaws Section 8.1) within the Collaboration are represented, assisted, and supported throughout the tenure of the Collaboration. This will include arranging mentors for junior members who desire mentorship, and facilitating junior member career advancement through relevant workshops and other activities. The JSAC Chair and Vice Chair are appointed by the Spokespersons after consultation with the ET and subject to approval of the GB. The Chair and Vice Chair serve two-year terms that parallel the Collaboration election cycle. Membership on the JSAC is open to volunteers from the Collaboration, with the approval of the JSAC Chair.
