ECR Career Development Network: Closing date 12 December 2021
We are delighted to announce an exciting new open call and are now welcoming applications to the VALIDATE ECR Career Development Network. VALIDATE recognises the challenges faced by post-doctoral and early PI researchers trying to progress their careers. As part of VALIDATE’s aim to encourage and support career progression amongst members, especially Early Career Researchers (ECRs), and to help address inequality in scientific career progression, we are creating a two-year-long ECR Career Development Network programme for female members. Find out further information about this Programme on our website.
