Get Involved in Social Science Research


Scotland’s Administrative Data Research Centre (ADRC-S) is looking for volunteers to join their Public Panel. If you are interested in social science research and in helping the Edinburgh University based team develop research projects of public benefit, this may be for you.

Role of the panel
The ADRC-Scotland Public Panel will put the views of the public at the forefront of ADRC-S activities and be involved in shaping the approach of ADRC-Scotland and also to communicating and engaging with members of the public.

Your role
ADRC-Scotland does not expect you to have specialist knowledge of academic research or the use of data. They will provide you with mentoring and training to help you understand ADRC-Scotland and the research it does. You should be enthusiastic about getting interests of the public properly considered in the work that we do. Meetings (half day) will be held every quarter

Travel expenses will be paid, as well as a small honorarium for your time.
