The next #ECRchat is on Thursday 17th April at 11:00-12:00 in the UK (BST), which is 12:00-13:00 in Europe (CEST), and 20:00-21:00 in Sydney (AEST). This chat will be hosted by Katie Wheat (full bio below).

Please vote for your preferred chat topic (topic descriptions below):

 

Careers outside of academia – making the decision, where would you go, dealing with reactions, adjusting to a new identity

Career transitions – moving from PhD to postdoc, changing departments/institutions/disciplines, building a new network

Getting career development support as an ECR – what is available to you, how do you make the most of it, how do you get your PI onboard?

Moving towards independence as an ECR – searching for that illusive first independent funding, taking steps towards independence while employed on a grant, what does independence look like?

Katie Wheat is a project manager at Vitae. She was previously as postdoctoral researcher in cognitive neuroscience at Maastricht University and holds a PhD in psychology from University of York. Katie co-founded #ECRchat with Hazel Ferguson and now coordinates the chat with Beth Hellen.
