EFSA calls for applications for Scientific Committee
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is calling for applications to renew the membership of its Scientific Committee and ten scientific panels. Members will “contribute to delivering the highest quality scientific advice” for Europe’s decision makers in the areas of consumer, animal and plant protection. Applicants are expected to demonstrate experience in carrying out scientific risk assessment and have proven scientific excellence in one, or preferably several, of the fields in EFSA’s remit. The new members will be appointed for the three-year term starting mid-2012 and ending mid-2015, once the term of current members expires. The deadline for application is May 31st.
