Seeking Early/Mid Career researchers

July, 2022

The ICOH Scientific Committee on WDPI is seeking greater involvement of early and mid-career researchers through establishing a working group. We define an EMCR to be a person who is less than 10 years post-PhD or equivalent.

We hope that the working group will promote career development, networking, communication and advice for early and mid-career researchers in the field of WDPI; and also take a practical role to support the activities of the WDPI Scientific Committee through organization and contributions to international conferences and symposia.

If you would like to know more or contribute to the group please get in touch via the link below.
