Early Career Researcher Network for Arts, Humanities and Business

Our Early Career Researcher Network is dedicated to providing support and guidance to the diverse range people within the Faculty who self-identify as early-stage researchers, including doctoral students and academic staff in the early, ‘transitional’ stage of their career and research staff on fixed term contracts.

We organise open forums to share information and provide opportunities for networking and discussion, and offer guidance on career development and training, to enable the ECRs within our Faculty to grow their research, and become confident independent researchers.

The network is co-ordinated by Dr Kayla Parker, who works in partnership with ECR representatives from the four Schools within the Faculty and the Doctoral College, with support from research staff and senior researchers.
