Opportunities Board

Welcome to the FEMS Opportunities Board. Here you can find opportunities varying from events and jobs to awards and useful resources. In the above field you can search within all opportunities. You can also browse through our opportunity categories. If you want to look into for instance events only, you will find a collection of those if you click on Events and Courses.

If you are registered to our website and logged in, you can directly place your own opportunity here. You will find the steps how to do this in our contributor guide and in our video guide. This is a trial service free of charge. As we are constantly evaluating it we would like to encourage you to use it and send us your feedback via the feedback form.
