Call for applications for a position on the EFSA management board.
http://ec.europa.eu/food/efsa/efsa_board_en.htm. The final deadline for submission of applications is 15.10.2006. The Authority is located in Parma (Italy).
The Commission is organising this selection procedure to replace a member who has resigned and whose mandate was to expire on 30 June 2008. The call encourages applications from candidates from the new Member States and candidates with strong backgrounds in consumer affairs.
According to the Regulation establishing EFSA, the members of the Board are appointed in such a way “as to secure the highest standards of competence, a broad range of relevant expertise and, consistent with these, the broadest possible geographic distribution within the Union”. In addition, four of the members of the Management Board “shall have their background in organizations representing consumers and other interests in the food chain”.
