Programme Organising Committee - 2 member vacancies

Deadline 22 February 2019

We are seeking applications for two members of the ESPE Programme Organising Committee (POC). The 3-year appointments will start in May 2019 at the next POC meeting for the ESPE 2020 Meeting. The vacancies have arisen as a result of the end of the term of office of Dov Tiosano and Nils Krone.

This is an exciting opportunity to play a key part in the biggest event in ESPE’s calendar, which is attended by around 4,000 paediatric endocrinologists. The main tasks of the POC are to develop the programme of the Annual Meeting, integrating suggestions from the membership, and to participate in the evaluation of submitted abstracts.

The workload consists of one teleconference every two months, ongoing emails and preparation work and two face-to-face meetings every year (one during the annual ESPE meeting). Applicants should have wide knowledge of the published literature in paediatric endocrinology in general and detailed knowledge in specific area(s). An interest in diabetes mellitus, adrenal conditions or growth/pituitary disorders would be particularly welcome.

The appointments will be made by the ESPE Council following recommendation by the POC. If you are interested in applying for these important posts, please send a copy of your CV and a covering email to the ESPE Team at: espe@eurospe.org outlining your suitability for consideration. The closing date for applications is 22 February 2019.
