Early Career Forum in Manufacturing Research

EPSRC seeks expressions of interest for the refresh of the membership of the Manufacturing the Future Early Career Forum. EPSRC is looking to appoint 10 new members of the forum. Applicants should have a strong focus on advancing the UK’s international reputation in manufacturing research, be open to developing inter-disciplinary research agendas, help with two way communication between EPSRC and the early career manufacturing research community, and have an interest in participating in research policy development.

Members of the Early Career Forum will have the opportunity to interact with other early career academics from across the breadth of engineering and the physical sciences, forming new professional networks that may generate future innovative research programmes.

Forum members will also have targeted opportunities to participate in EPSRC strategic advisory activities, interact with senior staff of EPSRC funded large grants, including the EPSRC Future Manufacturing Hubs, and will receive insight into, and practical advice relating to, UK funding body policy and practice.
