The IDRN is recruiting new steering group members

The Infectious Disease Research Network (IDRN) are now inviting applications from UK-based colleagues to join the IDRN steering group. This is an exciting opportunity to guide the direction of the Network, and to provide advice on, and become involved in, IDRN activity. The main aim of the tenure would be to advise on and drive through efforts to secure long-term funding for the network.

We are seeking to recruit enthusiastic colleagues in infection-related disciplines with a good track record as steering group or committee members; they will bring fresh ideas and new approaches to both securing funding and also potential IDRN activity. Steering group meetings are essential for setting the strategic direction for the network. The steering group meetings are also used to discuss suggestions for IDRN workshops, training days and other activities.

Meetings are held twice a year, typically in late Spring/early summer, and and in November / December, and take place in London. We hope that steering group members will also contribute to the IDRN’s programme of activity, depending upon their area of expertise. This may involve: –

– attending protocol development groups
– attending planning meetings for research strategy workshops or training events
– liaising with the IDRN and key contacts in the area of research being worked on

The deadline is 5.00pm on Wednesday 4 February, and applications will include completion of a short online form and submission of a short CV. Applications will be assessed by current steering group members, and all applicants notified of decisions before the end of February.
