BECR is a recently-formed group of early career researchers (ECRs) who work in the School of BioSciences at The University of Melbourne.
BECR aims to:
- provide opportunities for networking and career development;
- represent ECR interests within the School and the Faculty of Science; and
- make life in BioSciences more sociable and enjoyable!
BECR will be holding regular networking events, so make sure you check out the new website for updates. Of particular interest is the BECR Research Summit – the group’s premier event. The BECR Research Summit will be held on the 9th of December 2016, so save the date!
BECR will also host a lunch at Naughtons on Royal Pde every month. These lunches will be on alternate days each month, to ensure that all BECRs have the opportunity to come along. The inaugural BECR lunch was attended by almost 20 ECRs, and hopefully the network will continue to grow in the coming months!
If you have any suggestions for events, or information you think may be useful to other BioSciences ECRs, please drop them a line. Examples include conferences with an ECR focus, or funding opportunities for ECRs. There’s already an excellent list of funding opportunities on the website, so make sure you check that out too!
