Thematic Champions: call for expressions of interest
Are you an engaged, collaborative academic, with an interest in issues beyond your discipline, and a willingness to help forge the next stage of the Eastern Arc initiative?
We’re seeking people who can lead our thematic priorities and draw together people from across our consortium.
- Health systems, social care and wellbeing
- Human rights, equality and conflict
- Sustainability, natural resources and food
- Culture, connection and creativity.
We are now seeking 12 thematic champions to develop a focus, a critical mass and a supportive network within each of these areas. Ideally, there will be one champion in each theme at each of the Eastern Arc universities. We are looking for colleagues with a strong interest in discovering the work of others, in making connections and in building collaborative links across the Arc.
In difficult times it’s a real opportunity to work with colleagues beyond your faculty and university, and to develop a positive, creative and potentially very productive collaboration.
Submitting an expression of interest
The deadline for expressions of interest is Monday 29 June 2020. To be considered, please submit a two page CV with a brief covering letter stating which of the themes you’re interested in, why you are interested in the role, and what you can bring to it.
Applications will be assessed by a panel of associate (or deputy) deans for research from across the three universities, and we hope to let you know the outcome as soon as possible after the deadline.
