The Victoria University Early Career Researcher group (VUECR) was established by VU early career researchers, with the full support of the Office for Research. In 2012, members of the VUECR group are re-launching the group, with the aim of making it a stronger voice for ECRs at VU and a better source of relevant information. All interested researchers are welcome to become involved.

ECR Committee Objectives

  • To represent the views of VU ECRs to the Office for Research and the Research and Research Training Managerial Advisory Committee.
  • To be a point-of-call for VU ECRs wishing to become more involved in the VU research community, providing and facilitating peer-to-peer support among VU ECRs.
  • To provide guidance and support to ECRs wishing to pursue a research career path, as well as those wishing to pursue a combined teaching and research pathway.
  • To promote and oversee scientific exchange and professional development among VU ECRs. This includes (but is not limited to):
    • Providing information and support on available grant schemes (including the VU Research Development Grant Scheme) and funding opportunities.
    • Helping ECRs understand the implications of VU and Commonwealth policies on their futures (e.g. RAI, ERA, research metrics).
    • Providing information and guidance on research dissemination.
