EPSRC seeking expressions of interest for membership of the Early Career Forum (ECF)

October 6, 2017

The EPSRC is seeking expressions of interest for a refresh of the membership of the early career forum (ECF) for academic researchers in the scope of the Manufacturing the Future challenge theme.

Applicants should have a strong focus on advancing the UK’s international reputation in manufacturing research, be open to developing inter-disciplinary research agendas, help with two way communication between EPSRC and early career manufacturing research community and have an interest in participating in research policy development.

Members of the Early Career Forum will have the opportunity to interact with other early career researchers from across the breadth of engineering and the physical sciences, forming new professional networks that may generate future innovative research programmes. Forum members will also have targeted opportunities to participate in EPSRC strategic advisory activities, interact with senior staff of EPSRC funded large grants, including the  EPSRC Future Manufacturing Hubs and Centres for Innovative Manufacturing, and will receive insight into, and practical advice relating to, UK funding body policy and practice.

This is not a call for a direct funding opportunity, but rather an expression of interest for membership of the Manufacturing the Future Early Career Research Forum.

For full details on how to apply, visit the EPSRC website.

The deadline for submission is Thursday 30th November 2017.
