APSAD ECR Network Group now on Facebook - March 2017
Join us on our new Facebook group for early to mid-career researchers studying/working in the AOD Sector and broader areas.
The closed Facebook group has been set up by the APSAD Early Career Researchers (ECR) Sub-Committee to provide a discussion forum and to give a platform for sharing ideas and information, and to network via group discussions.
Content will still be posted to the LinkedIn group, and we encourage continued discussion here. The Facebook group is our way of expanding, and to maximise the number of ECRs we can connect with as they journey through their academic career.
Here is the link to connect with us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/APSADECR/
Help spread the word inviting ECRs from your networks to join us on our Facebook and LinkedIn networking groups.
Join in the conversation!
News Update from the APSAD ECR sub-committee - February 2017
The APSAD ECR sub-committee held its first meeting of the year in early February and are happy to share some exciting new initiatives for 2017 which we hope will be of interest to members.
The committee will be venturing into podcasting, conducting a series of interviews with past APSAD Early Career Award winners to find out what they have been up to since winning their Award. We are delighted to announce Dr Suzanne Nielsen will be our first guest to be interviewed. We will notify members once this Podcast is finalised.
We have received very positive feedback on our breakfast networking event at the 2016 Conference. Attendees reported that they found it to be a unique opportunity to meet other early career researchers and senior academics, and indicated overall enthusiasm for future events. Thank you to all those who attended to make it such a successful event.
In the works are plans to put together a publishing workshop to be held at the APSAD Conference this year as part of the Sunday pre-conference activities. This workshop will be followed by an informal networking event. We hope to have details finalised by the end of March, at which point all the event details and registration information will be on the conference website.
Connect with us on our LinkedIn group, a great forum for meeting early career researchers within the field. As part of this group, we share thoughts on such topics as emerging research methodologies, tips for grant writing, and our general experience in the research space. Join the discussion on the APSAD Early Career Research Network LinkedIn group.
