Early Career Researchers Network

The Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures Early Career Researchers Network is a new forum to support the University of Sheffield’s community of early career researchers (ECRs), postdoctoral researchers and fellows working in sustainability. It is also open to PhD students about to make the transition into early career researcher positions.

A launch symposium and workshop is being held on Friday 12 May 2017, to support the network’s development, and shape its aims and objectives, based on the wants and needs of Sheffield’s early career sustainability researchers.
