ESRS Early Career Researcher Network (ECRN)

Members (2016 – 2018):
Kate Porcheret (Coordinator), Cátia Reis (Vice-Coordinator), Madeleine F. Scriba (Secretary), Erna Sif Arnardottir, Lyudmila Korostovtseva

The Early Career Researcher Network (ECRN) has been working on the programme for the Early Career Day for the 24th Congress of the ESRS in Basel. The event aims to develop skills needed for all early career researchers – this year we are focused on the dissemination of your research with talks on media training and how to write a paper. We will shortly confirm the details of the day – so make sure to sign up to our Facebook group (ESRS Early Career Researcher Network) to get all the latest updates.

The Basel meeting will also see the end of term of Erna Sif Arnardottir and Catia Reis – we would like to express our thanks for all the work they have done, including the initiation of the ECRN! We will therefore be looking for two new members of the ECRN committee in Basel (details of how to join the committee to follow).

The ECRN committee members continue to advocate for early career researchers at the ESRS committees we attend including the ESRS board meetings, the Education Committee, Research Networking Committee and the newly formed Web Committee. We have also recently seen a change in coordinator of the ECRN: Erna Sif Arnardottir has stepped down as coordinator to ensure continuity in the committee following the appointment of new committee members in Basel.
