We have just received this call from the AHRC with regards to recruiting new members for their Research Careers and Training Advisory Group. They are looking for academics and PGR students:
The AHRC is seeking to replace several members who have reached the end of their terms on its Research Careers and Training Advisory Group (RCTAG). The Group provides advice on postgraduate support and career development for researchers, and on future AHRC strategy in these areas.
Potential candidates should have an active interest in researcher development issues. We are looking to recruit:
· An academic from the Arts and Humanities;
· An Arts or Humanities PhD student, who can be at any stage in their research and who does not have to be AHRC-funded. This is a good development opportunity and will allow them to gain new insights into policy and strategy for support of researchers;
· An early career researcher in the Arts and Humanities - in this context, any individual who is within eight years of their PhD or equivalent professional training, excluding career breaks, and who is pursuing a career in academia (including those undertaking part-time teaching or lecturing).
To be considered for membership of RCTAG, please complete the online form here, also uploading a CV (maximum two-sides), and submit these by Friday 10 October 2014.
If you have any queries, please contact Researcher.Development@AHRC.ac.uk
