DEADLINE: Wednesday, September 21, 2022
The AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) Network is currently soliciting for member nominations to the ACTG’s scientific committees. The ACTG is seeking qualified clinical and laboratory investigators with expertise relevant to the area of research who are willing to commit the time necessary to serve on the Transformative Science Groups (TSGs) and Collaborative Science Groups (CSGs). Interested investigators with appropriate expertise need not be affiliated with a funded ACTG Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) or Clinical Research Site (CRS) and/or have previous involvement with ACTG studies.
- International investigators and junior investigators are strongly encouraged to submit their names in nomination to science committees appropriate to their interests.
- International site personnel are strongly encouraged to submit their names in nomination to committees appropriate to their interests and experience.
Current members of committees for whom a second term is permitted and who are interested in serving a second term must submit a nomination packet.
The detailed listing of position vacancies for the different committees is available on the ACTG Committee Nomination web site at https://nomination.mis.s-3.net/. The listing also specifies who is eligible for the positions, term duration, number of conference calls per month and meetings per year, and a brief description of duties and responsibilities of the positions.
Nominations and required accompanying materials must be submitted online at https://nomination.mis.s-3.net/ by Wednesday, September 21.
The individual position descriptions for the vacancies specify who may submit a nomination and when self-nominations are acceptable with the appropriate documentation.
Nominees must submit all required documents and acknowledge their willingness to serve. The list of required documents, also available on the website, is as follows:
- Nomination letter outlining the candidate’s qualifications, relevant expertise, experience, and accomplishments pertinent to the position
- NIH biosketch (template available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/forms/biosketch.htm and on the ACTG member web site)
Nominations for science committees will be distributed to the relevant committee for review and selection. The AEC will review and determine whether to endorse the selections made by the respective committees. Following the AEC review, the nominees will be notified of the election outcome. Once the committees have advised nominees of the outcome, the AEC will broadly announce the selections and post the results to the ACTG web site.
Questions regarding the nomination process should be directed to the ACTG Network Coordinating Center at ACTGCommitteeNominations@dlhcorp.com.
