Early and Mid-career Researchers
The early & mid-career researchers (EMCR) group is open to everyone in the department. Most EMCRs are grade 6-8 and in an academic or research related role. The group meets several times a year to discuss topics of importance, hold Q&A with senior staff, access development and training opportunities as well as meet socially!

The EMCR-T was convened in 2022 to produce a discrete, time limited piece of work, in recognition that career progression for EMCRs within NDPCHS has arisen as an area requiring attention through a number of different sources.
The report provided: a survey of EMCR needs, a review of relevant documents including those at the university, department, and division level, funder policies, and successful Athena Swan gold applications; and a list of proposed actions.
