EARLY/Mid CAREER RESEARCHER Forum
About the Forum
The Australian Academy of Science recognises the challenges faced by Australia's emerging researchers and in 2011, established the Early/Mid Career Researcher Forum (the Forum). The Forum engages with early-mid career scientists from around Australia and advises the Academy on the key issues raised by younger researchers, to help inform its policy recommendations to government. Importantly, the Forum provides a vital connection between Australia's most eminent scientists and tomorrow's future scientific leaders.
Further information about our national meeting can be found here.
