AHRC: Call for Research Careers and Training Advisory Group Members

The AHRC’s Research Careers and Training Advisory Group (RCTAG) is seeking new members. RCTAG was established in January 2013 and provides advice on postgraduate support and career development for researchers, and on future strategy in these areas.

The AHRC is seeking to replace several members who have reached the end of their term with the Group. 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)

A representative from the non-academic sector – applications are welcome from any sector with an interest in, and engagement with, the Arts and Humanities.

Applications are invited by the deadline of Friday 10 October 2014. Find out more in the RCTAG Expressions of Interest call document (PDF 86KB, opens in new window) or on the AHRC’S RCTAG webpages.
