South African Young Academy of Science members

The South African Young Academy of Science (SAYAS), an organisation that aims to be the voice of the country’s young scientists and to help bridge the gap between science and society, seeks to elect South Africa’s leading emerging researchers in basic and applied science, engineering, social sciences, arts and the humanities.

In addition to a demonstrated excellence in research, candidates should be able to show an ongoing commitment to improving science through engagement in community development, capacity building and mentoring activities.
