The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is inviting applications from experts to join its newly formed Advisory Committee for Social Science, and is seeking to appoint a Chair and nine members.

This independent expert committee will provide expert strategic advice to the FSA on its use of the social sciences including new and emerging methods, processes and systems to interrogate data, to deliver the FSA’s objectives. Its purpose will be to help the Agency utilise these sciences and approaches to shape and deliver strategic objectives and understand its impact. Where needed it will work with other advisory committees to advise on how best to bring together the different types of evidence, approaches and information across diverse disciplines and fields to address strategic problems or interests.
