Join SUS

Want to join SUS?
We are a huge community dedicated to improving the undergraduate experience of Science students at UBC. Running or applying is an excellent way to get involved: you can meet tons of great people, advocate for Science students, and start learning the ropes of leadership in university. Hiring links will be posted here when they are live, so read below for hiring dates.

Get Involved with the Society (only requires you to apply!) :

Assistant to vice-presidents, committee chairs, and general committee positions are hired in the summer, in early to mid May. Positions are posted on CareersOnline, so keep your eyes peeled around May! We also usually have a Facebook event that has all positions available, so look out for an event that is typically named “SUS Executive Hiring 20XX [Summer]”. No prior experience is needed, but a cover letter and resume are. 

General committee positions are hired in the fall, in early September. To apply, look for our Facebook event typically named “SUS Fall Hiring 20XX” around early September. Again, a cover letter and resume are submitted.  No prior experience is needed!
