Early- and mid-career researcher (EMCRs) in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) working for employers located in regional Australia face unique challenges that can affect their career development.

Opportunities to access professional development and networking with potential collaborators can be limited compared to the opportunities EMCRs in metropolitan areas can have access to. 

The Empowering Regional Research conference aims to provide EMCRs with an opportunity for professional development, focussing on building skill in key areas that are applicable to industry, academia and other areas, and transferrable across different fields.

The event will be held on 12-13 February 2020 at the University of New England in Armidale, NSW.

Early bird registrations are now open.

Who should join?

EMCRs working in academic institutions or research organisations outside of major cities are invited to register.  EMCRs are defined as researchers who have received their PhD within the last 15 years (excluding any periods of career interruption).

Topics include:

  • Time management and prioritisation
  • Communicating Research to diverse audiences and stakeholders
  • Building a professional profile and online presence
  • Key leadership skills and strategic planning
