Early Career Researcher Advisor Network

Early career researchers (ECRs) are academic staff who have completed doctoral studies in the last five years (periods of maternity, career or extended leave will be deducted when assessing eligibility) on any JCU campus and in any discipline.

We invite ECRs who are members of JCU’s academic staff to participate in our ECR training program. We provide a range of opportunities, listed below.

Information on the sessions on offer is provided below. You can only do the face-to-face session OR the online program.
