UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is seeking to appoint further Council members for each of the nine Councils.

Council members play a critical role in UKRI’s strategy development and governance – providing input, intelligence and feedback from their communities and stakeholder groups and working closely with their Executive Chairs to deliver their council’s aims and objectives.

This is an important opportunity for leaders from a variety of backgrounds to support UKRI’s overall mission.

UKRI aims to ensure that the Councils encompass and benefit from a diversity of perspectives, expertise and experiences and applications are welcome from across the research and innovation community, government and industry.

Council members will be appointed for a period of either two, three or four years. The staggered terms will balance continuity with evolving membership of the councils in future.
