AHRC 2013 Call for Nominations to the Peer Review College

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) is seeking nominations for new members to be appointed to its Peer Review College (PRC).  This Call is open to all nominees who meet the eligibility criteria (please see related guidance document).  

Peer review lies at the heart of the AHRC’s operations, and we are fully committed to the principle of peer review for the assessment of proposals to our schemes and programmes. PRC members provide expert quality reviews of proposals within their areas of expertise, which inform the AHRC’s decision making processes. As well as making an important contribution to the AHRC’s peer review processes, the experience gained by membership of the College provides benefits to individuals, departments and higher education institutions.

Please click here for more information about Peer Review College Membership

College Groups

The AHRC organises the College into groups to improve our ability to match reviewers’ expertise with proposals, and to enable us to identify reviewers who can assess certain aspects of proposals. Individuals can be nominated to join one or more of the groups, as listed below:
•	Academic
•	Non HEI *1
•	Strategic
•	International
•	Knowledge Exchange
•	Technical Reviewers

*1 Non HEI organisations might include Government departments and agencies (including the Cabinet Office and Foresight Programme), Local authorities, Voluntary sector, Minority and other community groups, Private sector, Museum, archive, library and heritage sectors 


We welcome nominations for all candidates, at any stage of their career, who meet the relevant eligibility criteria. Please see Appendix A in the guidance notes.

Please note  that candidates must be nominated by a senior  staff member or representative within Higher Education Institutions  (for example Pro-Vice Chancellor, Dean, Head  of School  or College, Head of Faculty, Research Director) or other organisations, learned societies or professional associations.

Research Areas
This is an open call including all areas within the AHRC’s remit. However, nominations are particularly invited from those with expertise in one or more of the Targeted Research Areas and Themes listed below. This does not have to be their primary area of expertise.

How to Apply
Please note that the nomination process consists of three stages and nominees are strongly advised to follow the steps as recommended in the guidance.

Guidance notes, including details of the eligibility criteria, can be downloaded from the AHRC PRC News page.

Nominees - the relevant online survey must be completed and the following must be uploaded: a brief CV (this should be no longer than 2 sides of A4, and should cover all areas set out in the ‘Guidance notes on completing the Peer Review College Nomination process’); and, a list of major publications within the last 5 years (no longer than 1 side of A4).

Nominators – the relevant online survey for nominators must also be completed and a Case for Support (max. 500 words) must be uploaded. Please note that if a nominator is nominating more than one candidate, they can do so within the same survey. They will need to provide details and upload a Case for Support for all the individuals they are nominating.

The deadline for nominations is 12 noon on 11th December 2013.

If successful, College members will be appointed for a term commencing 1 June 2014 and ending 31 December 2017.
