EMCR Pathways Issue 10—February 2017

Issue 10 January 2017

The Australian Early- and Mid-Career Researcher Forum of the Australian Academy of Science serves as the voice of the country's future scientific and research leaders. We currently reach over 3,300 individuals and are seeking to broaden and increase our engagement with Australian EMCRs to better represent their views, needs and vision to decision-makers within the government, members of parliament and key funding agencies.

“When some fool physicist gives a lecture on physics and says ‘This is the way it works, and look how wonderfully similar all our theories are’ maybe it’s not because they really are similar. Maybe it’s because we physicists have only been able to think of the same damn thing over and over again. Of course, another possibility is that it is the same damn thing over and over again.”
Richard Feynman
