The BBSRC is one of the 7 Research Councils. It is a national funding agency supporting research and study in the UK. The BBSRC is a public body with a Royal Charter operating as an executive non-departmental public body accountable through the Director General Business and Science (DGB&S), to the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills. The primary purposes of the BBSRC as set out in its Royal Charter are: • to promote and support high quality research relating to the understanding and exploitation of biological systems; • to provide trained scientists and engineers and to advance knowledge and technology thereby contributing to UK economic competitiveness and the quality of life • to provide advice, disseminate knowledge and promote public understanding in biotechnology and biological sciences. A review of the Research Councils has recently taken place, led by Sir Paul Nurse. The Nurse Review was published in December 2015 and the Government have indicated that they will take forward the recommendations. As a result and subject to parliament, a new body, Research UK, will be created and candidates should note that this will lead to some change in the AHRC Chief Executive post. The successful post holder will be an active advocate of this change and will have opportunities to help shape successful implementation. Research UK is likely to be formed in 2018-19. Research Council appointments are on the No10 interest list
