We are a diverse group of early career researchers who work in an academic and/or clinical setting. We are committed to career development, support and training to develop the research leaders of the future.
The Early Career Researcher Group for Health defines Early Career Researchers as individuals self-identifying as an early-stage researcher, from PhD student onwards. This broad definition recognises the different routes and varied career paths that may lead to an independent research career
sets out the commitment of the University of Plymouth to supporting the career development of researchers.
The Early Career Research forum has been set up to:
- provide a supportive space for early career researchers across the University and health and social care settings to meet up and share their experiences
- offer information on a range of opportunities, funding and useful resources in one space, saving time and effort
- deliver a space to establish shared interests and facilitate inter and intra-departmental collaborations
- ensure effective representation of Early Career Researcher interests.
