Closing Date: 15/07/2019

Vacancy Description

The Department for International Development (DFID) leads the UK’s work to end extreme poverty and to help to save lives when humanitarian emergencies hit.

DFID is recruiting new Members and a Chair for its Science Advisory Group (SAG), to provide independent and impartial strategic advice on departmental science and research policy and programmes for a period of up to 3 years.

We are recruiting across all our priority science and research areas (Health; Agriculture; Climate, Water, Energy; Growth; Humanitarian; Education; Governance, Conflict and Social Development; and Data for Development).

The SAG reports to DFID’s Chief Scientific Adviser and meets 3 times a year. Its independent advice helps DFID to meet its objectives by assuring the quality and appropriateness of the Research and Evidence Division’s substantial research portfolio. The current SAG consists of 11 senior academics chaired by Professor Sir Ian Diamond.

Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.

Interviews will be held during July 2019.

Person Specification

The successful candidates will be senior academic leaders (Professorial level), with expertise in national and/or international level research management and a demonstrable understanding of the impact of science and research for delivering the UK’s international development objectives. They will have strong national and international networks; experience of engaging with HMG Official Development Assistance (ODA) funded research; independence of mind; strong communication skills; and the strategic capability to work credibly and confidently with a range of stakeholders across DFID, with the government, and with national and international research communities.
