Supergen Energy Networks Hub

Early Career Researchers

Early Career Researchers

The Supergen Energy Networks hub is committed to support the Early Career Researchers (ECRs) working across this sector. Our ECR network provides greater opportunities for Energy Networks ECRs to help them develop into future leaders in the sector.

We take a broad view of what counts as an ECR, spanning from PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, through to academics at the start of their careers. Broadly, if you consider yourself an ECR then so do we. 

There are many oppotunities for ECR's to get involved,  If you want to stay up to date with everything we’re doing, sign up to our ECR mailing list and be the first to know about our upcoming events.

Want to be more involved?

We are expanding our ECR committee, inviting applications from ECR's both internal and external to our Community.

We are looking for ECRs who are:

  • interested in creating new opportunities for the Energy Networks community.
  • good at talking to other researchers in the field to find out what is needed and how to deliver it.
  • proactive with the ability to progress ideas.
  • able to attend three meetings per year.

What you will get in return:

  • the opportunity to choose how we spend the hub’s resources towards the activities and programmes that the ECR community needs.
  • reimbursement of  your travel and accommodation costs to attend ECR committee meetings (three per year).
  • support up to the amount of £2500 to cover travel, accommodation and registration at an energy networks conference of your choosing whilst you are on the committee.

If you would like to apply to join our ECR committee, please complete the Expression of Interest form.
