Message from Dr Claire Easthall, newly elected chair of UKSBM Early Career’s Network (ECN)

As incoming chair of the ECN  I’d like to take the opportunity to say a few goodbyes and some hellos to the ECN committee. Many thanks to Natalie Pearson for her contributions to the ECN and to Ellinor Olander for her excellent leadership and guidance as out-going ECN chair. Ellinor’s work in driving the ECN forwards has created a really exciting opportunity for me to continue ensuring that UKSBM’s early career researchers are well-represented and supported in UKSBM. Many thanks also to Kieran Ayling for his continued commitment to the ECN committee and a big welcome to Ruth Baxter and Aliyah Amirova as new members of the committee.

In addition to representing early career researchers at the UKSBM executive committee meetings, one of my key roles is to co-ordinate an early careers event at the UKSBM Annual Scientific Meeting each December and, as a committee, we’re already in the throes of making plans for December 2015. In the last three years our meeting topics have covered publications, grants and career planning and we’re currently looking for ideas for this year’s event. If you have any suggestions for the event or would like to be involved in any way then please email Claire at c.easthall@leeds.ac.uk. The ECN’s founding principles were that it represented the needs of the early career researchers within UKSBM so we’re really keen to hear you views and suggestions about the way we work and what events we can deliver so please do get in touch.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and suggestions soon and seeing you at the UKSBM ASM in December,

With very best wishes

Claire
