About us

Current opportunities


We are currently seeking regional representatives for England and representatives abroad to help us engage more early career researchers. Being a representative is a voluntary position and would involve helping to advertise the network to early career researchers in your area, identifying LINK and LEAD opportunities and supporting the development of the network. If you are interested in being a representative, please register your interest here.

Alternatively, if you think you have other skills that could benefit the network, please contact us.
