The British Council is inviting expressions of interest from senior and early career researchers to expand their pool of panel members for the Newton Fund initiative and potentially other British Council programmes.

They're specifically looking for early career researchers who would like to broaden their experience of peer review as a career development opportunity, and for senior researchers who are willing to share and use their experience to support the review panels. Not sure if you're considered an early career researcher? Here's the British Council definition:

  • Early career researcher: a PhD holder + up to ten years. For fields where a PhD is not a usual career requirement, sufficient research experience will be accepted.

The Council is looking for researchers with the following specialisations:

  • biological and medical sciences
  • environment and agriculture
  • arts and humanities
  • social sciences
  • engineering and physical sciences.

More specifically, they would like to see applications from those working in these subjects:

  • human rights
  • forensic anthropology
  • marine biology/oceanography
  • aquaculture
  • public health/nutrition
  • food science
  • microbiology
  • earth sciences.

Deadline: 4pm, 20 July 2015.
