Appointments to ESRC Council 2013

We are seeking applications to fill two vacancies for part-time membership on the ESRC's governing Council, which are expected to arise during 2013.

Applications are sought from individuals with high-level strategic and leadership experience and a first-class record in conducting and leading research in the areas of:

  • Education
  • Sociology
  • Area studies
  • Economic and social history
  • Linguistics
  • Socio-legal studies
  • Anthropology
  • Social policy
  • Social work.
We are keen to obtain more diversity in public appointments which enable us to reflect all the communities we serve, and would therefore welcome applications from a diverse range of candidates.

The closing date for the receipt of applications is 19 November 2012.

The Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills will appoint members to the Councils on merit after considering advice from the Appointments Panel.
