The new convenors will join the current two convenors in maintaining and promoting the Forum. This role will require support and assistance in event planning, budgeting, and maintaining and growing the Forum’s online presence.
We have in the past also held dedicated lead roles. These roles have yet to be decided, however they would be split between 'Social Media and Membership', 'Events Co-ordination Convenor', 'Funding Convenor' and 'Web Convenor'.
Working in the Forum will require a not insignificant time commitment, so please do discuss with your supervisor before applying. Also, be advised we encourage applications from those in the early years of their PhD to allow for some continuity in the post.
Life as a convenor is busy, and will take time from your research project, but we feel the depth it can add to the whole PhD experience - allowing us to engage and collaborate with postgraduates and senior academics nationally - unquestionably makes up for that.
To apply, please email PGForum@britsoc.org.uk an expression of interest in the post that includes which post you would like to apply for; what you could bring to, and how you could benefit from, the role by Friday, 12 May 2017.
