Wellbeing of Women is looking to appoint new members to our Research Advisory Committee.

By joining our Research Advisory Committee, which is made up of leading experts across reproductive and gynaecological health, members have an opportunity to help shape and improve the future of women’s healthcare.

Since 1964, we have invested more than £65 million in the highest-quality research across all areas of women’s health.

Many of the treatments we take for granted today started with research that we funded including the use of ultrasound scanning in pregnancy, the importance of taking folic acid in pregnancy and the link between HPV and cervical cancer.

The Committee is central to the charity’s objectives, having the following responsibilities:

• To provide scientific and medical advice to Wellbeing of Women
• To assess applications for Scholarships, Fellowships, Project Grants and any other Wellbeing of Women
awards and to make funding recommendations to the Board of Trustees
• To assess ongoing awards and report findings to the Board of Trustees, advising on any necessary
course of action
• Provide guidance on the charity’s research strategy

We are inviting applications from experts working across the breadth of women’s reproductive and gynaecological health but this year, are specifically interested in recruiting in the following areas:

• Genetics in obstetrics and gynaecology
• Perinatal mental health
• Placental biology
• Reproductive endocrinology
• Urogynaecology
• Primary care clinician with an interest in women’s health

We welcome expressions of interest from leading scientists, clinicians and women’s health specialists and encourage applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds.

Applications will be considered throughout the year on a rolling basis. Our next review date is 23 June 2022.
