Call for Applications to STFC Advisory Bodies and Peer Review Panels, 2020

May 18, 2020, from Astrolists

Dear all,

Every year, a number of vacancies become available on STFC’s advisory bodies and peer review panels. These bodies perform a vital function for STFC, providing advice and guidance that aids our strategic direction and supports our decision-making processes.

Members of our advisory bodies and panels have the opportunity to influence STFC’s strategy, policies, and funding decisions, as well as guiding STFC to most effectively develop the societal impact of our investments and best support our research and innovation communities. Members will also be able to expand their professional networks and explore a wide range of challenges related to investment in UK science and engineering.

We are committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). In addition to our broader UKRI position on EDI, STFC continues to develop a range of measures and objectives around EDI. The diversity of our panels is one of our key foci. We would like to encourage everyone to consider this opportunity. We would also urge colleagues to share these details with everyone in their networks and teams – including any specific diversity networks that exist within your institution.

Tow view and apply for positions across a broad range of available panels and committees, please visit the STFC Call for Applications page.

The specific requirements for each vacancy are clearly listed, and all applications will be assessed via an appropriate review process, according to the listed requirements.

We are seeking applications from academia, government, industry and ‘third sector’ communities (including charities) relevant to STFC’s grant programmes, and from the communities supported by STFC facilities. Submissions from scientists who are STFC employees are also welcome. Irrespective of career stage, members of STFC advisory panels and peer review bodies are expected to have in-depth knowledge of their disciplinary remits, a clear track record of achievement, and a good understanding of the wider UK and international context in their field.

This is an annual call and, as a result, membership may commence at different times. For all committees, members will be appointed for three years unless otherwise stated. Please note, you can make a self-application only.

Many Thanks,

STFC Programmes Directorate
