Angus Fraser is to join a new three-man England selection panel at the start of next month.
Former Test seamer Fraser will work alongside national selector James Whitaker and England's limited-overs coach Ashley Giles.
The Middlesex director of cricket's first task in his new role will be to help pick the limited-overs and then Test squads against Sri Lanka next summer.
Whitaker is delighted to have 48-year-old Fraser as a new colleague.
The national selector said: "Gus has been heavily involved in cricket for many years as a player and an administrator.
"He brings integrity and the wealth of knowledge that we will need as we look to identify the players across all formats who can thrive in the international environment."
