Research Funding Panel Recruitment

We are currently recruiting for Chairs and Deputy Chairs for our Research Funding Panels to commence from August 2022 for a term of three years.

To help us further develop our research capacity in line with BU2025, the Research Performance and Management Committee (RPMC) oversees research investment and performance. Under the auspices of the RPMC, Funding Panels have been established to have oversight of funding allocations, in order to further build the research environment, our external engagement and the quality and impact of research endeavours. Funding Panels demonstrably operate in an academically robust, fair and transparent manner.

These are exciting opportunities to lead University-level Panels, to network and collaborate with colleagues from across the University, and to contribute to decisions about how best to invest in future research and knowledge exchange projects.

The Chair serves for a period of 3 years plus one further year as an outgoing chair, providing mentorship and support for the incoming chair. The Deputy Chair serves for a period of 3 years and is permitted to apply to be the Chair in the event the Chair comes to the end of their term or chooses to relinquish the role.

The vacancies are:

  • Acceleration of Research & Networking (ACORN) Funding Panel:
    • Chair
    • Deputy Chair

 

  • Global Visiting Fellowships (GVF) Funding Panel:
    • Chair
    • Deputy Chair

 

  • Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF) Panel:
    • Chair
    • Deputy Chair

 

  • Research Impact:
    • Chair

 

  • Charity Impact:
    • Chair
    • Deputy Chair

 

  • Doctoral Studentship:
    • Chair
    • Deputy Chair

 

Eligible staff are invited to apply via an expressions of interest (EoI) round.

Chairs should be members of the Professoriate (full Professors) but cannot include members of Faculty Executives, and Deputy Chairs should be members of the Professoriate (Associate Professors).

 

Roles will commence 1 August 2022, with some handover prior to this. The new Chairs/Deputies will also be involved in the recruitment and selection of other panel members before they commence their Panel roles formally. The only exception to this is the Deputy Chair role for the Charity Impact Panel, which should start as soon as possible.

 

We aim for all panels to be at least proportionately representative of senior staff at BU, i.e. at least one third women and at least one tenth BAME. Therefore we are keen to receive applications from staff who are from underrepresented groups in University decision making, including (but not limited to) women, staff who work part-time, and staff who consider themselves disabled. In line with BU2025, the aim is for the Panels to be representative of our diverse academic community.
