ILD | The Institute for Lifecourse Development

Early Career Researcher Network

Early Career Researchers (ECRs) form a vital part of the academic community at the Institute for Lifecourse Development and Faculty of Education, Health and Human Sciences (FEHHS).

The ECR Network aims to support ECRs to develop their research and knowledge exchange agenda. The ECR Network provides a voice for ECRs by representing ECRs’ issues and views at the Faculty Research & Enterprise Committee and the University PGR/ECR Forum.

The network is open to all staff members within the Faculty who identify as ECRs (similar to the UKRI ECR Forum). By joining the FEHHS ECR Network you will have the opportunity to meet fellow ECRs, share knowledge and ideas, or develop new collaborations.

We have a highly multidisciplinary group of ECRs. Our research interests range from wellbeing and mental health, to education and social inequalities. We have expertise in nursing, social work, psychology, public health, and sports science, and we use a range of methodological approaches to conduct our research.
