In order to have an effective voice, we need to have a strong EMCR Forum membership.
Membership of the Forum is open to early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) actively engaged in STEM research, either as a researcher or in a role that substantially supports the delivery of research and that requires substantial research training and experience.
In principle, an EMCR is someone between 0 and 15 years of graduating from a PhD or equivalent (discounting career interruptions) and includes individuals in Australia’s academia, industry, government, public, commercial and not-for-profit sector positions.
The Forum aims to be accessible and inclusive, so there are circumstances where self-identification as an EMCR can be accepted as criteria for what defines an EMCR. The Executive also recognises and is inclusive of alternative career pathways, individuals from underrepresented intersectional communities (as identified by the EMCR forum, Equality Australia, research institutions, government, and funding bodies) who are considering or embarking on a research career and is open to considering membership of researchers without a higher degree but with equivalent professional experience.
