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. We are creating a network to provide 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, you consider yourself an ECR then so do we. 

We will be creating lots of ECR opportunities as the hub develops. If you want to stay up to date with everything we’re doing, then hit the button below to sign up to our ECR mailing list and be the first to know about our upcoming events.

Want to be more involved?

We are creating an ECR committee to give you control over the hub’s resources to do the things that will help our Energy Networks ECR community thrive and develop.

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 and able to drive things forward.
  • willing and able to spend at least 18 months on the committee (starting October 2019), attending three meetings each 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 all 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.

We are currently in the final stages of setting up our ECR committee and are no longer accepting Expressions of Interests to join the new committee. If you are interested in getting involved with the hub please join our mailing list contact us by email. 

ECR Cross Hub Webinar Series

The Supergen Hubs have got together to host a new series of cross-hub webinars to allow ECRs from all the Supergen Hubs to connect and share their experience under these challenging circumstances! 

If you have missed any of thr webinars, these are available to view.
