ESI Early Career Research (ECR) network
We have around 140 ECR's in the ESI. These include everyone from first year PhD’s to the very experienced Postdocs, so we have a wide range of disciplines and levels of experience. It is important to have a space for our ideas and collaborations, and to try to facilitate research that falls out with the current discipline set up. Most importantly during these current times, we need to have a space for informal socialisation (even if online at the moment!) and feel a sense of community, which is of course, very difficult to achieve.
The monthly ESI ECR events ‘Keep calm and collaborate’ aim to address these needs and are hosted by the ESI’s ECR reps, who each represent a major research group within the ESI. So far, our events have looked at global challenges and big questions, to help focus our skills towards specific aims, and we have also looked at resources and databases that we all have access to, which could be useful to us all. Although the current online events never feel quite the same as the in-person events for engaging with each other, we do hope that these monthly opportunities to socialise bring back a little of that cohesiveness and research serendipity the ESI was always good at collaborating with people from various disciplines.
Katie Shanks is the ESI ECR lead.
