ECR Network to be launched
A new network for early career researchers (ECRs) is to be launched this term.
The ECR Network will be an opportunity for ECRs to meet and discuss common issues they face, and to hear from senior staff about their experiences. Meetings will cover a range of subjects including 'getting published in journals' 'developing collaborations', and 'balancing the conflicting demands.'
The first meeting on 4 Oct will be introduced by the VC, Prof Dame Julia Goodfellow, who will discuss what support there is and should be across the University for ECRs. This is an opportunity to talk about your experiences, and think about what would help in the development of your career.
This will be followed by an informal talk by Prof Darren Griffin (Biosciences) and Jenny Billings (Centre for Health Services Studies) about developing a personal research strategy. They will cover issues around strategically planning and developing your research, balancing idealism with realism, and how to cope with the unexpected.
For more information on the event, or if you want to be included in the Network, please contact Phil Ward (email@example.com).
