Expressions of interest are invited for membership of the RSE Grants Committee. This Committee reviews a large proportion of the Society’s research award applications, including its international projects. As the RSE moves towards the introduction of its new Research Awards programme (from April/May 2021), the Society is aiming to deepen and extend the interdisciplinary expertise of its Grants Committee and to replace two members who have recently demitted membership.
These two positions are interim in the first instance – until April/May 2021 – but interested parties may be drawn upon as part of the Society’s cross-disciplinary panels of reviewers once the new schemes are in place. Fellows of the Society and members of the Young Academy of Scotland are eligible to become Committee members. Expressions of interest are welcome from Fellows/YAS members from any discipline, but are especially welcome from persons with expertise in the Social Sciences, and/or the Arts and Humanities. The RSE is committed to ensuring opportunities to join our Committees are inclusive.
To express an interest in joining the Grants Committee on this interim basis, please email [email protected] for further information by 8 September.
