The Royal Society's Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) provides advice to government and others to inform policy challenges related to mathematics and quantitative education for 3-19 year olds and the transition into further or higher education or employment. ACME works closely with the Joint Mathematical Council of the United Kingdom (JMC) and the Council for Mathematical Sciences (CMS) and with the Royal Society's Education Committee and Science, Industry and Translation Committee. Key priorities include teacher supply, professional learning, curricula and qualifications and the mathematical needs of employers and higher education.

The Royal Society is seeking proposals for new members from areas including mathematics teaching in schools and colleges, education research, the mathematical sciences, higher education admissions and industry. Members should have proven expertise, experience of high-level and strategic thinking and delivery, and have strong networks. The term of membership is up to three years, with a flexible starting date.

Members will be expected to attend 3 meetings per year in London and may be invited to chair expert panels. Teacher supply cover is available.

Please register your interest by emailing, including a CV and a cover email setting out your suitability for the role. Closing date: 13 December 2016.
