DOM School Steering Committee Vacancies x2

Deadline: 14 July 2019

We are seeking applications from ESPE members for two positions as members of the ESPE Diabetes, Obesity & Metabolism School Steering Committee. The vacancies have arisen due to current committee members, Moshe Phillip and Tadej Battelino completing their second terms of office. The three-year appointments will start in November 2019.

The main task of the Diabetes, Obesity & Metabolism School Steering Committee is to develop the programme for the School and participate in the evaluation of applicants. The successful applicants will also attend and participate actively in the School, which usually takes place immediately after the Annual Meeting. They will teach and be involved in mentoring the students. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet and impart your knowledge to paediatricians from across the world, while gaining valuable experience of different professional practices, cultures and teaching styles.  

Applicants should have a wide knowledge of published literature in paediatric diabetes, obesity and metabolism in general and detailed knowledge in more than one specific area.

The workload consists of email communication and preparation work, attendance at the Diabetes, Obesity & Metabolism School, evaluation of submitted applications, and face to face steering committee meetings every year (during the School).

The appointment will be made by the ESPE Council following recommendation by the Diabetes, Obesity & Metabolism School Steering Committee. Consideration will be given to the diversity of the Committee, in terms of gender, geography and special interests.

If you are interested in applying for this post, please send an electronic copy of your CV and a covering letter to the ESPE Team at: espe@eurospe.org by 14 July 2019.

All applicants should read the ESPE Committee Guidelines before applying.
