Do you want to play a vital role in the UK’s research and innovation system?

UK Research and Innovation brings together the seven research councils, Innovate UK and Research England. We work to ensure the UK maintains its world-leading position in research and innovation.

Each Council is led by an Executive Chair, supported by a council of between 5 and 12 members.

The Councils have a pivotal role in ensuring the success of UK Research and Innovation, helping it achieve its strategic objectives to be the single, strong voice of UK research and innovation, and building on our world-leading reputation.

Council members have a wide range of expertise and experience in research and innovation across higher education, industry and commerce, policy and/or civil society reflecting different characteristics and professional backgrounds. The exact membership takes into account the specific needs of each council. All applicants will be judged on merit alone and we particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented on our Council.

BBSRC, as part of UK Research and Innovation, is using Green Park to recruit to three additional members of our Council. We are looking for three individuals, one with expertise in the food industry, one in emerging technologies, such as but not limited to artificial intelligence, informatics technologies, data science, deep learning and machine learning, particularly with a focus on applications in the biological sciences and one in agricultural or industrial (bio)technologies. Applicants with relevant expertise and experience within the remit of BBSRC are encouraged to contact Green Park for further information. To view the candidate brief and details of how to apply please see: Green Park: UK Research and Innovation - Council Members.
