The Merseyside local group of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) is looking for volunteers to join the committee for 2020 as ordinary committee members.
We are seeking volunteers based in the area to join the local group committee and oversee the planning and delivery of a programme of events. For the 2020 committee, we particularly welcome applications from early career academics or industry statisticians from different disciplinary backgrounds.
The committee organises 3-4 events a year to actively engage the local statistical community and anyone with an interest in statistics. We aim to share statistical expertise with local organisations and industries, and communicate the value of statistics to school pupils and students. Recent examples include an event on research at Chester Zoo, Mental Health Statistics and Risk. A list of events can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/rssmerseyside/research-meetings
Please note that to take up a position you will need to be a fellow of the RSS.
The RSS is committed to ensuring an inclusive and welcoming environment for all who care about good data and statistics.
