UCL IfWH Early Career Researchers Network
The term Early-Stage Researcher refers to researchers in the first years (full-time equivalent) of their research activity, including the period of doctoral training and the postdoctoral period prior to obtaining tenure.
The IfWH ECR Network aims to support the delivery of a holistic learning environment that extends beyond individual research groups to facilitate the transition to becoming an independent researcher
The forum will include a space for ECRs to present their own work, organise socials, obtain careers advice and peer support and centralise/ share the information about different events organised by the Faculty of Population and Health Sciences
We aim to deliver montly talks including both internal and external speakers covering a variety of different topics including:
Grant application writing
Preparing manuscripts for publication
Thesis writing skills
Masterclasses in specific lab techniques
PIs Careers stories
Careers in industry stories
Figures and graphs trouble-shooting clinics
We also aim to organise social events open to all members of the Institute that enable networking opportunities in an informal environment.
