UCL Health of the Public


Meet the Committee

The Early Careers Network Committee is here to serve early and mid-career researchers who work in the health of the public field across UCL.

We aim to run 8-10 events throughout the year. These will include seminars, workshops and networking events that provide practical advice, opportunities for discussion and a platform to raise awareness of the challenges facing early career researchers. 

Our goal is to be inclusive and responsive to the needs of UCL's early career scientists. We therefore ask that you contact us with questions, comments and suggestions on the sort of events and activities that you would like the network to run.
