Work, employment and society is currently inviting applications to join its Associate Board.

WES is seeking new Associate Board members this year. Successful candidates will become members of the Board from January 2016, for a period of three years. The WES Associate Board is made up of 30 scholars, both junior and senior academics, who commit themselves to reviewing 4-6 papers a year for the journal. The Associate Board is a ‘virtual entity’ and, after an initial training session, there will be no face-to-face meetings of the Board.

The Associate Board is open to both junior and senior academics with a PhD, or equivalent, in any area covered by the journal or in a relevant subject. International and UK applications will be considered. You do not need to be a member of the BSA to apply for a position on the Associate Board; however successful candidates are expected to join the Association for the duration of their term.

The Associate Board requires members with a broad range of expertise, although preference will be given to those whose expertise is in demand by the journal. Candidates with knowledge of the following areas are particularly needed:

  • Quantitative Methods
  • Political Economy
  • Comparative Employment Relations
  • Theory (especially Social Theory)
  • Sociology of Health
  • Body Work/Sex Work
  • Sociology of the Professions
  • Self-employment
