Early Career Researcher Network: 2015-16 Programme Announced

Making links, forming networks
The ECR Network exists to offer mutual support to academics at the beginning of their careers. The sessions below will run in the Spring Term, and complement the Grants Factory workshops and Graduate School research development training programme. There will also be an opportunity to meet others informally and share the highs and lows of getting started in academia; more details on this soon.

I’ll send more detail about these events closer to the time, but do make a note in your diary if you plan to come along. To whet your appetite I've included links below to notes I took when any of these sessions have been run previously. 

Finally, I just wanted to say thank you to all of the colleagues below who have kindly agreed to take part in the programme. Their honesty and openness in talking about their experiences makes these sessions invaluable.
