    The LAGB student committee is looking for a current doctoral student to join the committee. We especially welcome applications from underrepresented groups and/or those attending universities outside of the South East of England.

    Forming part of the LAGB Committee, the Student Committee aims to
    represent the student members of the LAGB, and to provide a conduit
    through which issues and concerns on behalf of students can be raised.
    The Student Committee are also tasked with a number of specific
    objectives: to disseminate news and opportunities to the wider student
    community, and to assess applications for funding for postgraduate
    conferences. Peer-reviewing forms an important part of a scholar's
    continuous professional development, and the experience offered by
    contributing to the Student Committee would be extremely beneficial to
    candidates looking to progress into an academic role after the PhD.

    You can find out more about the student committee specifically here.

    The positions available are not attached to any particular role.

    How to apply:

    Doctoral candidates (at any level) are encouraged to submit a 500 word statement of interest, indicating how they might contribute to the Student Committee. In addition, we ask that applicants are supported by a statement from their respective doctoral supervisors, confirming their status and outlining their strengths. 

    Applications should be sent to the Chair of the Student Committee (e.jamieson@sms.ed.ac.uk) no later than 1st October 2017. Statements of support from supervisors should be sent separately, and can arrive after the stated deadline. General enquiries can be submitted to the committee’s collective email address at lagbsc@gmail.com.

    We look forward to hearing from you.

    E Jamieson

    Chair, LAGB Student Committee
