NEWCOMERS

Our Network for Early Career Essex Researchers – NEwComERs provides support to researchers in the early stages of their careers, e.g. newly-appointed lecturers, post-docs, research fellows and final year PhD students.

Newcomers creates a forum that brings together researchers interested in the different aspects of the research lifecycle and aims to stimulate collaboration and opportunities for shared learning and interdisciplinary work. The network also provides training and resources to support researchers across the research lifecycle from the UK Data Archive, the Research and Enterprise Office and the Library Services.

The Network aims to organise a wide range of workshops that foster professional development using informal, stimulating and highly participative sessions that generate new ideas and practical approaches to data management, publishing research results as well as gaining funding for your research.

Sign up to the Newcomers Mailing List to stay up to date with upcoming events and workshops. Once you are a member you are able to email the list to discuss research and opportunities for collaboration – a great way to get in touch with other Early Career Researchers!
