Research Committee

The primary objective of the research committee will be ensuring that the overall programme of research conducted by the PhD students and post-doctoral fellows supported by MARCAD is conducted to a high, international standard. The committee will not have responsibility for the day-to-day supervision of individual members of the consortium but will help in guiding its overall progress.

The committee will have 6-8 members chosen by the secretariat for their expertise and connections relevant to the interests of the PhD students and post-doctoral fellows supported by MARCAD. Members of the committee will generally be chosen from an institution outside the consortium.

Members of the committee will serve for a period of three years which may be renewed for a further three years if the Secretariat requests this and if they are willing to do serve again.

To ensure that members of the committee are fully conversant with the research activities of the consortium they will receive –

  • Copies of the applications of the successful PhD students and post-doctoral fellows.
  • Copies of the progress reports of the PhD students and post-doctoral fellows submitted to the MARCAD secretariat at the prescribed time-points.
  • Copies of publications arising from the work of the consortium.
