Call for SAB member candidate


The Board of EFI is looking for candidates for one vacancy on the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB)

The SAB proactively and independently advises the Board and EFI management on any matter pertaining to the scientific or policy support activities of EFI. In this sense, the SAB contributes to (i) the quality of EFI’s research and policy support activities and outputs, (ii) enhancement of the transparency of processes at EFI, (iii) helping to mobilize the EFI network. The SAB works as an independent body and it reports to the Board of EFI.

The SAB member will be appointed for a three-year period with the possibility of a three-year extension. The membership period starts from the Board’s decision. The SAB members work on voluntary basis.

The SAB member should be internationally known expert with considerable scientific achievements and experience in policy support and governance. Experts from Eastern European countries are particularly encouraged to apply. The candidates do not have to be from EFI member organisations.

To avoid any conflict of interest, the candidates may not be EFI staff members. In addition, the candidates are asked to explicitly declare their possible conflicts of interest by listing the current direct connections with EFI and its various bodies (such as those with EFI Project Centres etc.).

Interested candidates are requested to send their full CV and a signed Letter of Interest and Commitment by 23 November 2017 by using the online application form (see links below). The board of EFI will select the new SAB member in December 2017.

If you have any related questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Katriina Pajari at EFI (
