Join the Newton Fund's Peer Review Panel

The British Council is inviting expressions of interest from senior and early career researchers to expand their pool of panel members for the Newton Fund initiative.

The Council is looking for early career researchers who would like to broaden their experience of peer review as a career development opportunity, and for senior researchers who are willing to share and use their experience to support the review panels. Other British Council programmes may be considered depending on the initial response.

An early-career researcher is defined as being a PhD holder + up to 10 years. For fields where a PhD is not a usual career requirement, sufficient research experience will be accepted. 

Researchers with the following specialisms are eligible to apply:

  • Biological and Medical Sciences
  • Environment and Agriculture
  • Arts and Humanities 
  • Social Sciences
  • Engineering and Physical Sciences 

In particular the British Council would like to hear from researchers who have the following subject specialisms:

  • Human rights
  • Forensic anthropology
  • Marine biology/Oceanography 
  • Aquaculture
  • Public health/Nutrition
  • Food science
  • Microbiology
  • Earth Sciences

The closing date for submissions is Monday 20 July. Please apply via the online application form.
