The PAGES Early-Career Network (ECN) launched in February 2018 and is open to all paleoscience early-career researchers (ECRs).


The ECN is happy to announce the next webinar "How to successfully apply for academic jobs in science" will be held on 12 May 2020.

In this webinar, Professor Timothy Bralower from Penn State University will share information with us from the lectures he made for his students on this topic.

After your PhD, or your first postdoc, it can be difficult to find the next position in your career.

In this time when everyone has a large set of skills, it might pay off to work on our job application skills as well.

The webinar will be organized on Tuesday 12 May in two time slots (12:00 UTC and 17:00 UTC) and will last about one hour.

At the end of each session there is the opportunity to ask Prof Bralower questions.

More about PAGES ECN

How PAGES defines ECRs

ECRs are defined as:
- Age: Usually under 35 years
- Career status: a. PhD Students, usually in the latter stages of their degree. b. Post-PhD, usually within five years of completing their degree.
- However our guidelines are flexible and the network is open to anyone who believes they could benefit from participation in this network.

The interactiveness of the PAGES ECN means any member can participate and work alongside the steering committee, and contribute to the organisation of webinars, workshops, as well as participate in outreach events such as the ECN blog and social media platforms. We also seek participation among active members who are interested in acting as regional ECN representatives to facilitate the global integration of early-career researchers into the wider scientific community.

To strengthen the position of early-career researchers within the PAGES community, members of the ECN steering committee will work with existing PAGES Working Groups to establish liaisons between the two groups.
