The EPSRC is re-opening its search for applications to join two of our Strategic Advisory Teams (SATs). The SATs seeking further applications are:

  • Manufacturing the Future
    • Automotive - Industry Member
    • Food - Sustainability/Processing
    • Digital Manufacturing
    • New Industrial Systems
    • Chemistry/Biochemistry with a focus on manufacturing research challenges
  • Research Infrastructure - Capital
    • Industrial Facilities user
    • Person experienced in Managing Institutional/Regional Facilities

Following the internal shortlisting process, we have judged that these vacancies would benefit from a wider pool of applicants. To apply, please fill in an application form by 21 October. If you have applied previously in this round, please do not re-apply.

For more information and contact details please see the vacancies page.

EPSRC is committed to a policy of equal opportunities. Appointments to the Strategic Advisory Teams are made on merit. However, we are keen to obtain greater diversity in SAT membership. Applications from women, those with a disability and members of minority ethnic groups, who are currently under-represented on the SATs, are therefore especially welcome.


Strategic Advisory Teams provide Theme Leaders at EPSRC with strategic advice to help develop their theme.

We are looking for suitable individuals to guide and advise as theme experts. We seek the widest participation: you can be full-time or part-time, on sabbatical or a career break, academic or researcher, based in academia, industry, the third sector or government organisation. You will not be required to act as a representative of your own organisation but rather as someone with an expert command of a particular theme that is free of bias.
