Join our Research Ethics Committee

12 February 2020

We are seeking to recruit seven to nine Research Ethics Committee (REC) members to sit on an ethics committee which reviews research proposals for projects to be delivered or commissioned by the WWCSC, providing an advisory role to the Centre.

Whether you are an experienced academic with expertise in research with young people, or you work in children’s social care, or you are a member of the public with no experience at all, we want to hear from you!

Headed by the Research Ethics Chair, the main purpose of the REC is to collaboratively and carefully review projects undertaken internally by WWCSC, and occasionally those commissioned to other research agencies where it is not possible for them to be reviewed by their own REC. In the first instance, the REC will be responsible for advising the Centre on the compliance of its research to the ESRC’s framework of research ethics. The REC will provide robust and impartial advice on the ethical implications of various research proposals, working directly with researchers to express any concerns.
