Do you want to meet with fellow BU ECRs in an informal setting to discuss the highs and lows of being a Early Career Researcher?
Then … come and join the BU Early Career Researcher Network!
We meet monthly and have a programme of topics for the year. The next meeting is on Wednesday, 13th March, where we will be discussing how to find research funding
The network is open to those BU academics who define themselves as ECRs and includes PTHP. The Brightspace group is also open to others across BU who wish to support our ECRs.
If you would like to come to this event, or find out about future events by signing up to the ECRN community on Brightspace, just let us know.
Launched in September 2018, the Early Career Researcher Network welcomes Early Career Researchers, including those on fixed and PTHP contracts!
Indicative content for our forthcoming monthly meetings:
- Locating research funding
- Research methods – where to get help
- Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in research
- A full day writing retreat with support
- The opportunity to share your research within an informal setting with your ECR peers

Following the launch of the Early Career Researcher Network in September, the academic leads has been busy finalising the schedule for the coming year.

Within the community, there are discussion boards and surveys, where you can participate between the monthly meetings.
