We are a pan-London open network of early career applied health researchers across ARC North Thames and partner organisations. Find out more information.  

The committee is made up of PhD students and early career researchers, many of whom were ARC pre-doctoral students. 

We provide an infrastructure to support health and care professionals, researchers and students to develop academic skills & networks.

We host 5 - 6 events a year covering a range of topics in areas such as research methodologies, skills development and career planning.

We are looking for ARC North Thames students, post-docs, alumni or a member of one of our partner organisations with an interest in applied health research. 

Committee members will support the ARC ECR Network to develop, organise and deliver events and networks across the ARC and partner organisations. We ask that members also attend one 1.5-hour committee meeting per month.
