#ECRchat is a global discussion for the early career researcher community via Twitter.
Networked Researcher is delighted to have taken over the hosting of the fortnightly #ECRchat West discussions for researchers based in time zones West of the UK.
The chats will run every other week starting again on 14th November 2012 at 11.00-12.00 PST (19.00-20.00 UCT).
The chat is intended mainly for the discussion of post-PhD career issues and we welcome anyone who is interested, who has questions, or who has advice to share.
We hope that PhD students, postdocs, and junior faculty will all benefit from the advice and resources collected here. We would also love to hear advice and questions from those who have left (or are considering leaving) academia, and from senior faculty, including those who advise PhD students and other ECRs.
If you spot some useful ECR resources around the web please comment below so that we can link to it from this site. Also let us know if there is a topic you would like to discuss so that we can add it to the weekly poll.
For #ECRchat to work we need you! So let us know what issues you would like us to cover, what questions you want answered etc.
If you have an issue you’d like to host then let us know either through Networked Researcher or through the #ECRchat West blog
We look forward to chatting with you soon!
