[NETWORK] Regional Studies Association Early Career Representative Board Position
Apply before 11 October!
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic Early Career Researcher to join the Board of the Regional Studies Association.
The RSA is an established global Association. For more information on the RSA, please go to www.regionalstudies.org. A place on the Board will enable the successful candidate to engage with colleagues from students and early career researchers through to high profile academics and policymakers internationally at meetings, conferences and social events.
The successful candidate will be actively involved and participate not only in the discussion and exchanges among the Board members at their (normally) three meetings per annum but will be expected to participate with them in the delivery of the Association’s aims and objects. This is an observer post that carries no right to vote and no associated liabilities but in practice post holders will be encouraged to participate openly in meetings.
During the term of office, the post holder will meet distinguished scholars, develop their organisational and interpersonal communication abilities and benefit from our Board members’ experience. This position offers a unique opportunity for career and network development.
Reasonable travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the Association to attend the Board meetings two of which are normally held in London and third is usually linked to the Association’s annual conference which moves around Europe. During the global pandemic, Board meetings and conferences are held online.
