Description

Early Career Researcher (ECR) Networking Conference

25th Sept 2017

Life as an ECR can be demanding and stressful as you find your feet as an independent researcher. Being plugged into an active research community can be vital to sustaining momentum, keeping up-to-date with information, and building your network of potential collaborators. This one-day conference has been designed by ECRs for ECRs with the aim of providing opportunities for networking, learning, and building a community of support for ECRs at La Trobe University.

Supported by the Deputy Vice Chancellor-Research Professor Keith Nugent, we have planned an exciting and diverse programme for the 2017 conference:

  • Delegates will have opportunities to put questions to a panel of La Trobe’s research executive and senior management teams on issues most relevant to ECRs;
  • Two invited external keynote speakers will lead us through their research career journeys with lots of tips and ideas on how to carve out a career in research;
  • A futurist panel will lead discussion on what the future looks like for ECRs;
  • Lightning round presentations from ECRs will bring delegates up to speed on the range of research that is occurring across the University.


The conference will be held at the Bundoora campus. Travelling from a regional campus? Contact the conference committee for information on how we can help fund your travel to the conference.
