The ARC North Thames Early Careers Researchers (ECR) Network was established to provide a supportive and inclusive space for researchers, students, health and care professionals and those working in applied health research.
The ECR Network Committee is composed entirely of alumni from the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research (CLAHRC), our predecessor, as well as current PhD students. Leading on the development and planning of events with support from Academy staff provides Committee members with an opportunity to gain experience in workgroup operations and community engagement, while providing the wider research community with events focused on careers and skills development as well as networking opportunities. Recordings of previous ECR seminars can be found on our free online support page.
In response to the need for support within the early career researchers’ community under the social distancing guidelines in place to combat the spread of COVID-19, the ECR Network currently hosts weekly writing sessions and online social calls via Microsoft Teams.
