The SERA Early-Career Researcher Network has recently been established to support early-career researchers (ECR) in Scotland. We intend the term ECR to be understood broadly and therefore includes:
- Classroom teachers, head teachers, student teachers and any other educational practitioners working in any area of Scottish education;
- Student researchers, at undergraduate, Masters and doctoral level;
- Early career research assistants, fellows or associates based within further education, higher education or another educational establishment;
- Early career teaching fellows or lecturers based within further or higher education.
The overall aim of the network is to create a supportive environment where emerging researchers from across Scotland can come together to share and discuss research ideas, experiences and issues.
The network plans to organise a series of seminars and workshops, which will be advertised through the SERA website and our Twitter handle @SERAemerge
If you want to be involved, please contact the network co-convenors, Anna Beck and Stella Mouroutsou using the details below.
- We will hold two workshops at the SERA conference in Dundee, details below:
- Workshop 1: ‘Writing Peer Reviewed Journal Articles’, Prof. Stephen McKinney, University of Glasgow
- Workshop 2: ‘Occupying academia: Stretching the meaning of ‘career’’, Prof. Yvette Taylor, University of Strathclyde
- We will also meet at SERA conference in Dundee on Wednesday 23rd November 1630 to 1730. This is an important meeting where we will share ideas for future network activities.
- Finally, we will hold an official launch for the network in December/January – more information about this will be circulated shortly.
