The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) is seeking nominations for new members to be appointed to its Peer Review College (PRC).
The AHRC writes:
Peer review lies at the heart of the AHRC’s operations, and we are fully committed to the principle of peer review for the assessment of applications to our schemes and programmes. PRC members provide expert quality reviews of applications within their areas of expertise, which inform the AHRC’s decision making processes. Members can also be called upon to sit on assessment or moderation panels. As well as making an important contribution to the AHRC’s peer review processes, the experience gained by membership of the College provides benefits to individuals, departments and higher education institutions.
This is an open call for membership to the AHRC Peer Review College; nominees can also apply for membership to any of our individual colleges in addition to the Academic College. The Call for Nominations is open to any organisation that has eligible staff (including organisations from the charitable, third and private sector) and who can supply eligible nominators. The nomination process must be centrally managed and supported by the institution (not the nominee), with all nominations being submitted by institutions rather than individual nominees.
Please refer to the PRC Recruitment 2019 Call Document (PDF, 282KB) and our FAQ Document (PDF, 182KB) for further information and application guidance. The deadline for nominations is 16:00 on 15 October 2019. If successful, College members will be appointed for one term (4 years) commencing 1 January 2020 and ending 31 December 2023. New PRC members are required to attend an induction session. Induction training will run from January-March 2020 and invitations will be sent to successful nominees during December. If you have any queries regarding the nomination process please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team below on 01793 416060.
