Programme Organising Committee member vacancy

Deadline: 11 January 2021

We are seeking applications for a member of the ESPE Programme Organising Committee (POC). The 3-year appointment will start in March 2021. The vacancy has arisen as a result of the end of the term of office of Wolfgang Högler.

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 bone and growth disorders would be particularly welcome.

The appointment will be made by the ESPE Council following recommendation by the POC. If you are interested in applying for this important post, 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 11 January 2021.

Please ensure you have read the ESPE committee guidelines before you submit your application.
