Do you want to play a key role in advising the government on a range of issues relating to the welfare of animals used in research?
If so, this is an exceptional opportunity to deliver reports and policy advice to ensure that government is best placed to maintain the highest standards in the welfare of animals used in research.
The Animals in Science Committee (ASC) is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Home Office to provide independent advice to the Government on the use of animals in scientific procedures, advise the Animal Welfare Ethical Review Bodies on good practice, and exchange information with other national bodies within the European Union.
We are seeking six new members with expertise in veterinary science, neuroscience, industry (pharmaceutical/toxicology), animal technology/welfare/3Rs and legal expertise (regulatory). The successful candidates will possess excellent communication and influencing skills, the ability to work as part of a team, and the ability to evaluate complex issues to reach a consensus.
This will be a three year appointment with the possibility of re-appointment. Applications are due on 28 January 2019.
