Steering Committee (SC)

Two open positions on Euromyositis committee

Dear all

On behalf of the Euromyositis Registry, we would like to invite applications for 2 newly created positions posts on the Euromyositis committee.

1. Neurology representative

2. Non-European representative

We feel it is important to have these new posts in order to make the committee more representative of current Euromyositis registry users and we would value contributions from these areas. The commitments are not onerous and would involve participating in an hour teleconference every three months and ideally participation at the yearly MYONET meeting. More information about the Registry can be found at https://euromyositis.eu/.

Interested applicants should forward on a short one page CV and the statement of no more than 200 words why they would be interested in applying for the post, to Dr Hector Chinoy, Euromyositis Chair, at hector.chinoy@manchester.ac.uk. Deadline for application: July 31st 2014.
