Early Career Researcher Network: Events this Term

ECRN: listening to others, making connections, sharing your experiences
The programme of events for the Early Career Researcher Network has been agreed, and I'm just sorting out all the venues. If you're an ECR at the University of Kent and want to come along to any of these, do drop me a line: they're free, and refreshments are provided.

The ECRN workshops are complemented by a very comprehensive programme of skills training run by the Graduate School. These are open to researchers and lecturers as well as postgraduates, and cover a wide range of important issues. More details in their handbook, here (pdf).
