Jayne has served on numerous UK and international advisory committees, many associated with the use of Large Scale Facilities. For example, she has served on beamline review panels at ISIS at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratories (FAP3, large scale structures and FAP 2, disordered structures) and the ILL (College 8, biology) and was a recent chair of FAP3.
Jayne also served on the access panel for the Central Laser Facility. She was external coordinator for ZOOM, a small angle neutron scattering instrument for the second target station at ISIS and is a member of the Institute of Physics Facilities Forum, the UK Neutron Scattering Group and the Diamond SAXS User Working Group.
