EFSA is looking for scientific experts
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) will renew the membership of its Scientific Panels and Scientific Committee in 2024. A call for applications was recently published on the EFSA website.

EFSA’s Scientific Committee and Panels are comprised of highly qualified, independent scientific experts committed to conducting scientific assessments and developing related assessment methodologies. Membership of these Panels/Committee is renewed every five years, with the next renewal in July 2024.

Joining EFSA's Scientific Committee or Panels is a unique opportunity to work with some of the best experts in Europe, expand your network, and advance your career in a multi-disciplinary, inclusive, and flexible organisation.

How are experts selected?

A call for applications is launched one year before the renewal. After a thorough selection process, the EFSA Management Board nominates the experts based on a shortlist submitted by the Executive Director.

The call and further details are available at the following link.
