ESRC Grant Assessment Panel Member Recruitment

Responsive mode grant assessment process

Grants Delivery Group (GDG)

The funding recommendations for our Research Grants, New Investigators and Secondary Data Analysis (SDAI) schemes are made by the Grants Delivery Group (GDG). The GDG is chaired by an academic member of Council. These funding recommendations are informed by the Grant Assessment Panels (GAPs).

Funding recommendations of other responsive mode schemes are made by specially constituted commissioning panels.

Grant Assessment Panels (GAPs)

The role of the Grant Assessment Panels is to appraise proposals submitted under the responsive mode schemes and classify them by grade according to procedures and criteria approved and overseen by Council, which has responsibility for the schemes.

The role of academic panel members is to assess and score the proposals allocated to them in light of the reviewers’ comments and principal investigator (PI) response to reviewers' comments, bringing their own expertise to the assessment, rather than simply summarising the peer review. User panel members comment on proposals and participate in panel discussions, but do not formally score proposals. User members are not restricted to commenting on impact and knowledge exchange considerations, since their expertise may equip them to comment on the substance of the research.

GAP recruitment

We are currently recruiting for four panels:
