Who we are

The ACNS Early Career Researcher (ECR) sub-committee is comprised of PhDs and Post-Doctoral representatives at varying stages of their career. The aims of the ECR sub-committee are to develop and promote a supportive early career research community, and provide representation within the society. The sub-committee also hopes to provide a forum for discussing issues relevant to ECRs and support community members to have a successful and enjoyable start to their research careers.

What we do

  • Provide ECR support across the Society
  • Provide links to career resources for ECRs
  • Increase communication between the society and ECRs
  • Provide one source of mentorship through peer-to-peer mentoring within the society
  • Provide links to resources for gaining skills essential for cognitive neuroscientists in ACNS
  • Open avenues for collaboration between ECRs across universities
  • Enable ECRs connectivity between ECRs and the broader cognitive neuroscience research community
