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

Webinar

The ECN is happy to announce the next webinar "From Idea to Paper in the Paleogeosciences - Using RMarkdown to make your work easier and better looking" will be held on 23 January 2019.

This webinar will introduce participants to RMarkdown documents, and the way they can be used for documenting ideas, performing interactive exploratory analysis, and how they can be carried all the way through to publication, with examples.

The webinar will include a brief introduction, and a walk-through of a worked example with the Neotoma Paleoecology Database and the chronology building software Bacon.

The host is Simon Goring.

There is no need to register.

Times

The session will be held twice on the same day, 23 January 2019, at 16:00 (GMT) and then again at midnight GMT (technically 24 January), to maximize international participation.

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.

Description

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.
