Career opportunity - British Council Peer Review panel

The British Council would like to invite expressions of interest from senior and early career researchers to expand our pool of panel members for the Newton Fund initiative and potentially other British Council programmes. 
We are looking for early career researchers who would like to broaden their experience of peer review as a career development opportunity, and for senior researchers who are willing to share and use their experience to support the review panels. Please note that we can only consider researchers based at UK institutions.

Eligibility:

Senior and early-career researchers. Early-career researcher is defined as being a PhD holder + up to 10 years. For fields where a PhD is not a usual career requirement, sufficient research experience will be accepted. 

Researchers with the following specialisms are eligible to apply:
-Biological and Medical Sciences
-Environment and Agriculture
-Arts and Humanities 
-Social Sciences
-Engineering and Physical Sciences 

In particular, we would like to hear from researchers who have the following subject specialisms:
-Human rights
-Forensic anthropology
-Marine biology/Oceanography 
-Aquaculture
-Public health/Nutrition
-Food science
-Microbiology
-Earth Sciences
