About the early career network

As an early career researcher in earth system governance there are many opportunities to develop your research, skills and professional network. At the same time, the world of academia can sometimes seem daunting. How can you make the most out of academic conferences, publishing your first (or second, third, fourth..) journal article, starting to teach and supervise students, writing reviews, defending your PhD, acquiring funding, and balancing all these activities whilst looking after your mental and physical health?

Welcome to the Earth System Governance project’s early career network (ECR)! You are in the right place to get some help to answer these questions and more! We like to support each other as early career researchers. Therefore, we aim to collect and share resources and experiences including advice from mid-career and senior scholars, as well experiences from early-career colleagues. The ECR network is a space for expression and collaboration. Do you have an idea or blog post you want to share? Then please get in touch with the committee via the International Project: ipo@earthsystemgovernance.org.

The two major activities that early career scholars can avail of each year are the Mentoring Initiative and the Early Career Dialogues (or summer/winter school, as it falls).
