UCL Health of the Public are recruiting a new Early Careers Network Committee Co-Chair

13 May 2024

We are recruiting a new Committee Co-Chair!


The Health of the Public Early Careers Network (ECN) was established in 2014 to support the professional development of early career researchers across UCL who have a research interest in any aspect of improving the health of the public.

Through regular events, we provide opportunities for researchers to develop skills, meet peers, share ideas and experiences, and initiate collaborations. Details of our ECN, useful resources and a summary of past and future events is available on our website.

We are currently recruiting a new Co-Chair to lead the ECN committee, to help build on the successes of our network and organise future events. This is an excellent opportunity to develop your leadership skills, strengthen your networks across UCL, and help shape the support Early Career Researchers are offered. The successful applicant will work alongside our existing Co-Chair Dr Louise McGrath-Lone to oversee the development of a programme of activities, share chairing of 6-8 meetings per year, and lead in the organisation of at least one ECN event per year. The co-chair will sit on university-wide groups and committees, including the Health of the Public Delivery Group and the Research Staff Consultative Committee.

If you are a PhD student (year 3-4), post-doctoral researcher or junior Principal Investigator working in any faculty/discipline, have a population health interest and would like to Co-Chair the ECN committee, please send your CV and a brief (half page) statement outlining why you’d like to get involved, and detailing any relevant experience (e.g. events organisation, leadership or committee experience) to healthofpublic@ucl.ac.uk by 31st May.

If you would like an informal chat about the role, please contact UCL Health of the Public ECN Co-Chair Dr Louise McGrath-Lone: l.mcgrath-lone@ucl.ac.uk
