The Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO) is looking for international experts in different scientific fields to strengthen its expert panels. These panels meet once or twice a year in Brussels to evaluate research proposals submitted by researchers in Flanders. The panels are made up of 12 members who are top experts in their discipline(s) as well as generalists able to evaluate research proposals in their wider field of study. The majority of panel members in each panel is not affiliated to a Flemish research institution.
FWO is currently looking for candidates to populate its Review College. The Review College is made up of highly qualified and experienced research experts who may be called upon to join an expert panel. Membership of the Review College does not commit you to serving in the panel, but enables FWO to contact you with an invitation to join a panel. FWO expects to appoint at least 150 new panel members in this call (start date: 1/1/2022).
FWO is looking for a wide variety of experts in each of its expert panels. The expert panels fundamental research at FWO are grouped in different scientific areas:
- Biological Sciences (Bio)
- Humanities (Cult)
- Social Sciences (G&M)
- Medical Sciences (Med)
- Science and Technology (W&T)
Furthermore, the Interdisciplinary panel evaluates interdisciplinary research applications. An overview of the scientific scopes can be found here.
If you have a truly interdisciplinary and international profile and are interested in evaluating proposals about international networking opportunities, collaborations etc. (not only focusing on core research fellowships and projects), we warmly invite you to apply for the Cross-Domain panel (CDP panel). Here, we are explicitly looking for experts with a broad profile who are willing to evaluate across different scientific domains.
FWO strongly encourages women to apply.
