Member Involvement

Volunteer and contribute to the future of the EACR

We invite interested EACR members to be more involved in our activities by serving on our committees. The work of the volunteers on EACR committees is vital for the success of the EACR and it is also a rewarding experience for those involved.

The details of any current committee vacancies will be posted below. We also welcome speculative applications at any time, and we will keep your details for the next time there are open positions on our committees.

Application process

By the deadline of 23:00 CET on 31 January 2019, please submit by email:

  • Your completed application form
  • Your CV
  • A letter of recommendation from a referee. 

We will acknowledge receipt, and we will write to you by 08 March 2019 to inform you of the result of your application. 

Frequently asked questions

Whom can I use as my referee?

The referee should be someone who knows you professionally and is able to recommend you for the position. Ideally the referee should be a senior/well respected figure as this would give more weight to the recommendation.

Can I apply for more than one committee? 


Can I submit my application after the deadline?

Unfortunately not as we aim to evaluate the applications immediately after the deadline.

Who will evaluate the applications?

Applications will be evaluated by the EACR Nominating Committee, chaired by the EACR Past President Anton Berns.

Any further questions?

If you have a question, or if you'd like to submit a speculative application for future consideration, contact:
