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
