Appointment of members and term of office
Appointed members shall serve for a minimum of two consecutive years, and should be a mix of academic and research only staff from across the School. Appointed members are not based on Institute representation, however if an Institute or area of the School feels under-represented the Committee will consider requests for membership. Members should have some experience in successfully submitting two or more Ethics applications.
Where possible, each new cycle of membership should retain at least one appointed member from the previous academic year to ensure a minimum level of expertise while new members undergo induction.
Internal and External Advisors are expected to attend meetings as required or agreed with the Convener, assist in reviewing specific Ethics applications either directly or as a subject area specialist, and assist in review of projects where the School Ethics committee is unable to be impartial or have a conflict of interest.
Others may be in attendance at meetings of the Committee, at the discretion of the Chair, as the business of the Committee may determine.
Given the level of training and expertise required of members, substitutes will not generally be permitted to attend and act with the absent member's authority. Exceptionally, and with Chair approval, a substitute may be allowed.
The Ethics Commitee reports to Strategy Commitee.
Frequency of meetings
The Committee meets the first Tuesday of every month.
