Do you want to help shape the future of iGEM? Do you want to join an incredible team that spans the globe? Then apply to be an After iGEM Ambassador for 2020! The Ambassador Program is an opportunity to promote, support, and inspire your local iGEM community.

iGEM Ambassadors are motivated by two main goals: 

  1. Connecting with the incredible network of iGEM Alumni in your region 

  2. Promoting Synthetic Biology in your region 

We accomplish these goals by attending key regional events, increasing alumni engagement across multiple platforms, and creating events and programs that inspire the synbio community. 

This is a volunteer position, but travel and expense costs will be reimbursed by After iGEM. On average this position requires 10 hours per week, with more hours needed leading up to an event. There are weekly and monthly expectations for each ambassador.

Weekly expectations

  • Regional call to coordinate and discuss challenges 

  • Written update to the rest of the team 

  • Clear communication  with Ambassador Coordinator 

Monthly expectations

  • 2 events attended or planned per month 

  • Tracking engagement

  • One ambassador-wide check in call to discuss higher level challenges and goals 

  • Social Media updates 

If you have any questions about the ambassador program, please contact

We look forward to reviewing your application!
