NERC Council - Membership vacancies

5 June 2019

Do you want to play a vital role in the UK's research and innovation system?

UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) brings together the seven research councils, Innovate UK and Research England. We work to ensure the UK maintains its world-leading position in research and innovation.

Each council is led by an Executive Chair, supported by a Council of between five and 12 members. The Councils have a pivotal role in ensuring the success of UKRI, helping it achieve its strategic objectives to be the single, strong voice of UK research and innovation, and building on our world-leading reputation.

The Council members have a range of expertise and experience in research and innovation across higher education, industry and commerce, policy and/or civil society, reflecting different characteristics and professional backgrounds. The exact membership takes into account the specific needs of each council.

NERC, as part of UKRI, is using Green Park to recruit two additional posts. We are seeking to strengthen our Council to ensure a wide range of strategic experience and professional backgrounds, to provide us with broad advice and robust challenge. Applications are sought from experienced leaders in higher education, industry and commerce, policy and/or civil society, with a commitment to bringing research and innovation to bear on environmental challenges.

Applicants with relevant expertise within a professional context (such as, for example, sustainability leadership or consumer insight within business) and an ability to advise on new research and innovation opportunities within the remit of NERC are encouraged to contact Green Park for further information.
