ICMS seeks new members for the Programme Committee

24 May 2024

The ICMS is seeking to appoint up to four new members. Each member serves for three years in the first instance, with a possible extension of up to three further years.

The ICMS Programme Committee provides an independent assessment of proposals and review of the scientific activities at ICMS. It meets at least twice a year, normally at least once in Edinburgh. It is responsible for the vetting of scientific proposals and assisting the Director in the identification of areas of the mathematical sciences in which the ICMS should be involved.

The main duties are:
• Recommending referees for scientific proposals;
• Assessing referees reports and determining a rank list of fundable proposals for consideration by the Director and the ICMS Management Committee;
• Reviewing past activity and recommending improvements;
• Considering the funding portfolio and recommending areas for future potential funding;
• Reviewing various areas of expertise and identifying areas which could be strengthened.

Applications are sought from individuals who possess a range of expertise and experience in research and innovation across the mathematical sciences. 

Full details about the Programme Committee and its remit can be found in the attached document.

Applications should be sent by email to Georgie Colt by end of the day 31 July 2024.
