The AHRC is seeking nominations for its Peer Review College. I would encourage all research staff in relevant areas to consider putting themselves forward. Assessing applications for a funder will help to raise your profile nationally, as well as being a useful way of getting an insight into how the funder works, keeping abreast of what work is being done in your discipline, and gaining an understanding of what it takes for an application to get funded. More details of the call for nominations is available here.
Applications are sought from academics at all stages of their career and, if chosen, you will serve a four year term. If you want to be nominated do get in touch with your CV. I will pass your details on to Prof John Baldock, the PVC Research, who will put forward nominations on behalf of the University.
