Expressions of Interest for AH&MRC Ethics Committee Members & External Reviewers

The Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council (NSW) Human Research Ethics Committee invites applications for External Reviewers. The Committee’s objective is to ethically evaluate research proposals impacting the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal communities in NSW and oversee the data collection on Aboriginal health.

The role is supported by the NSW Health Department and is included in the NSW Aboriginal Health Information Guidelines. These guidelines direct all NSW government agencies handling Aboriginal health information. The Committee is diverse, with members from the AH&MRC Board, local ACCHS’s, Aboriginal elders, Aboriginal community representatives, and experts in medicine, medical research, clinical work, and health-related law.

The AH&MRC Ethics Committee invites young individuals (18-24 years), Aboriginal Health Workers, Medical Doctors, and Lay People to express interest in joining the Ethics Committee or External Reviewer Panel. Note that reviews by the external panel are voluntary and they do not attend HREC meetings, while Ethics Committee members are required to participate in these meetings.

To register an expression of interest in joining the AH&MRC Ethics Committee or being part of the External Reviewer Panel please email your CV to ethics@ahmrc.org.au.

The AH&MRC Ethics Committee will be holding an induction for all appointed committee members and external reviewers.
