Early Career Researchers Forum this Thursday, 21 April, 12.00-13.30, CCE1 012

The next Early Career Researcher Forum will be held on Thursday 21 April, 12.00-1.30 in room 012, CCE1 (the Faculty of Business and Law building on City Campus East).

This will be an opportunity to meet the ECR Working Group, the ECR representatives from each faculty who represent ECRs on various university and faculty committees and groups.

We do not have a strict definition of ECR that we adhere to and any colleague in the early stages of their research career, irrespective of career stage, discipline etc., is very welcome to come along to meet fellow ECRs and hear about some of the initiatives and ideas taking place across the university.

As well as giving an informal opportunity to meet and network with ECRs from across the University, the meeting will also include:
