<div>Dear 
IPCRG Colleague</div>
<div> </div>
<div>The IPCRG 
is looking to appoint its next Chair of Research. This is a tremendous 
opportunity to influence research practice and to generate evidence that will 
improve the respiratory health of people across the 
world.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>Previous 
postholders include Professor David Price, Dr Osman Yusuf and Professor Mike 
Thomas.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>Suitable 
candidates may include full or part-time academic candidates wishing to build 
their CV in terms of leadership and international work.  Practising clinicians 
and/or researchers with an interest in primary respiratory care who meet the 
criteria (Can be found under Documents <a 
href="http://www.theipcrg.org/display/OurNetwork/Committee+membership" 
style="color: #000000; font-family: verdana,geneva,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; 
font-size: 10pt; font-weight: normal; text-decoration: 
underline;">here</a>) are also welcome to 
apply. </div>
<div> </div>
<div><strong>Place 
of work</strong><br>This is mainly conducted from your usual 
place(s) of work. Nearly all the quarterly committee meetings are virtual and at 
a time convenient to the committee 
members. </div>
<div> </div>
<div><strong>Commitment</strong><br>The 
Chair's first role will be to appoint a new Research Sub-committee in line with 
the revised Terms of Reference of the committee (Can be found under Documents 
<a href="http://www.theipcrg.org/display/OurNetwork/Committee+membership" 
style="color: #000000; font-family: verdana,geneva,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; 
font-size: 10pt; font-weight: normal; text-decoration: 
underline;">here</a>).</div>
<div> </div>
<div>This 
is a 3-year term of office with a review at 18 months.  The Chair or Research is 
eligible for reappointment for a maximum total term of 6 
years.</div>
<div> </div>
<div>There is no 
mandated time, but an indicative amount would be the equivalent of day a 
week.</div>
<div> </div>
<div><strong>Reward</strong><br>Do 
you want to make a difference?   There is real scope to advocate for the role of 
primary care in generating evidence to affect practice using a range of 
methodologies including implementation science, data analysis and education 
evaluation.  There is also opportunity to increase primary care research 
capability in low and middle income countries where the greatest burden of 
chronic respiratory disease is found. </div>
<div>This is a 
voluntary position; there is no honorarium associated with the role.   However, 
we would expect that the Chair will be an active participant at our scientific 
meetings and other meetings agreed by the Board and therefore would be entitled 
to expenses in line with our travel and expenses 
policy.</div>
<div> </div>
<div><strong>How 
to apply</strong><br>Please email to businessmanager@theipcrg.org 
with an up to date CV and covering email that highlights your relevant 
experience, what you would bring to the role, your vision for IPCRG research, 
and indicating how much time you could commit to the 
role.</div>
