Theme 2 – Carbon & Biogeochemical Cycles: Sustaining Life Lead by Professor Kate Heal.

SAGES has a vacancy for a bright, enthusiastic person to join Kate in leading Theme 2.

Theme leadership is not onerous!~ rather, it is a great way to learn the workings of SAGES, influence the direction, and meet a wide cross-section of geoscientists in Scotland. Theme leaders play a pivotal role in decision making on funding for: PEER, PECRE, Small Grants, Fora and other discretionary funding streams under SAGES’ control. Theme leaders sit on the Research & Innovation Committee (RICom), which meets every 6 months in a combined session with the SAGES Executive Committee (ExCom). Theme leaders are not expected to drive forward new areas of activity within SAGES per se, but are expected to become knowledgeable about the breadth of activity within their theme area across the partnership, and help facilitate a balanced support of these areas through the funding routes outlined above. It is a great opportunity to learn more about all areas of geoscience and to facilitate their development by SAGES.
