Early-Career Researchers Network

Aim

The IAVCEI ECR-Net is a global group of volcanology researchers dedicated to connecting Early-Career Researchers in volcanology and related subdisciplines worldwide.

Upcoming events

IAVCEI Scientific Assembly, Portland, U.S.A., 14-18 August 2017

⇒ ECR specific programming includes:

The IAVCEI Early-Career Researchers Network (ECR-Net) was established during the IAVCEI 2013 conference in Kagoshima (Japan) by a group of Early-Career enthusiasts and then-IAVCEI President Ray Cas, in order to (1) support career development, (2) form an active network and (3) coordinate specific activities for early-career volcanologists. Since then, the ECR-Net working group has held several social meetings, interacted with IAVCEI’s Executive Committee, set up ECR discussion platforms on social media, and prepared an early-career dedicated programme for the IAVCEI Assembly in Portland in August 2017.

Ongoing efforts include the following:

Supporting career development

  • Hold workshops at IAVCEI-sponsored meetings: Q&A sessions with senior scientists, scientific CV writing, job opportunities, publishing, grant proposal writing, etc.;
  • Develop an online forum for Q&A with senior scientists, linking to job opportunities, etc.

Forming an active network to share resources

  • Use social media (Facebook, Twitter, VHUB) as informal ways to distribute ECR-specific information, e.g., international funding and partnership opportunities, ECR-Net activities, etc.;
  • Produce an ECR-Net newsletter highlighting cutting-edge research by early-career volcanologists worldwide (within IAVCEI News);
  • Highlight ECR news and science from listservs, websites, and journals. 

Co-ordinate early-career specific activities at IAVCEI assemblies and involvement in IAVCEI

  • Increase opportunities for ECR involvement and recognition, e.g., develop an award to recognize early career scientists, and/or dedicated ECR events.
  • Increase involvement of early-career researchers in convening sessions and IAVCEI commissions;
  • Hold early-career specific pre-/post-conference workshops to provide training, networking and feedback/advice on presentations of other topics of early-career interest.

Join us!

(VHUB is a great way to build your network from the start of your career!)

If you want to be part of the core working group as a regional representative (Asia, Africa, Middle-East especially) or have any helpful suggestions to enhance the efficiency of the ECR-Net, please send us an email!
