  1. BACKGROUND / VISION

BioQuisitive is the first Biohacker, or community science space, in Victoria and the second in Australia. It came to be because we saw an untapped opportunity to utilize the immense amount of scientific talent and resources already existing here as well as a need for a lower threshold of entry by the public to explore and understand emerging fields of science. In a world with so much fear we feel that understanding is a potent tool to dissolve that fear as well as provide incredible empowerment to the public.

We have been operating for three years and counting, without any major external funding aside from one 10K grant from Monash we have been completely supported by monthly memberships and  and workshop fees from events held at the lab. We have demonstrated a public desire for the space and the survivability of community science in Melbourne. Our next phase is to expand our level of engagement for our community and generate greater income to provide more consistent and quality support within our organization. 

BioQuisitive Ltd, a charity established in 2015, is governed by 3 directors and a constitution. The directors are elected in accordance with this constitution. BioQuisitive operates a PC1 laboratory that has been equipped with donated equipment from various universities, biotech companies, and research organizations. It is subject to the federal regulations set by the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator.

  1. SEEKING EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

BioQuisitive’s next Director is someone who is passionate about public empowerment and the contribution of science to society. They will have the strategic capability to help bring Bioquisitives vision of democratizing science to a fuller expression. Experience in funding acquisition via grants or other means is highly regarded as well as previous business development experience. Experience in running profitable event series and public engagements with fresh ideas. It is beneficial to have an understanding of the startup world, as well as public desires and even fears. We would welcome someone who loves to network, can see how seemingly different disciplines and fields fit together and is not afraid to set audacious goals, but can also generate a strategic plan to achieve it. We welcome a dreamer but also the doers.

POSITION OBJECTIVES

Provide guidance on our expanding business development and quality of engagement goals.  

A Director of BioQuisitive is responsible for contributing to the effective functioning of the charity, and has the full legal and ethical responsibilities of a Board Director. It is the role of the Board to provide strategic guidance to BioQuisitive in setting and meeting its objectives.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

It is the role of the Board to provide strategic governance for the organization exemplifying and reinforcing BioQuisitives core values and ethos, and supporting the association’s vision and mission of democratizing science.  Directors are responsible for overseeing all aspects of the organization within its regulatory environment, including its control and accountability systems and for approving the expenditure and capital budgets. Directors need to be able to adapt to the distinctive characteristics and develop and maintain healthy relationships with all key stakeholders.

 

Directors must commit to:

  • Monthly Board meetings (currently these are evenings at a pre agreed upon time)
  • Board Committee meetings as negotiated
  • Annual General Meeting and occasional ad hoc or extraordinary meetings as required
