Network coordination and support

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee (SC) is composed of PhD students and postdocs with a wide range of expertise and skill sets in the paleosciences. Primary tasks of the SC include facilitation and coordination of the PAGES ECN activities, management of our email account and other communications, and production of monthly newsletters. The SC establishes and maintains broad visioning for the activities and growth of the ECN. The Steering Committee is the primary source of contact between the ECN and PAGES IPO, SSC, and other ECR networks.  

*For general inquiries, please email pages.ecn@gmail.com to contact the group, instead of contacting ECN Steering Committee members individually.*

Regional Representatives

Regional Representatives are selected ECN members supporting PAGES ECN by coordinating activities on a local or regional scale and by dissemination information between the Steering Committee and the ECRs in their region.

Below, you will find a list of our RRs. If you want to share information about events in your region or have any questions, please contact your local RR.

If you are interested in becoming an RR yourself, in a region not featured below, please email the Steering Committee: pages.ecn@gmail.com.

Regional Representatives are selected based on need and an application assessed by the Steering Committee and other RRs within the region applied for.

ECN Working Group Liaisons

Working Groups (WG) are the backbone of PAGES. ECN liaisons provide a link between the activities and research of WGs for PAGES ECRs. ECN WG Liaisons can be contacted by ECRs who are interested in joining a PAGES WG (or want more information about the working group). WG Liaisons are appointed by each WG to facilitate communication between the WG and the ECN.

WG Liaisons responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
1. Serve as a point of contact for the ECR members of PAGES who are interested in becoming involved in the WG.
2. Communicate important WG news relevant to PAGES ECN members (meetings, workshops, involvement opportunities) to the Steering Group or directly to the ECN mailing list.
3. When opportunities arise, initiate scientific output utilizing the ECN and its members (e.g., collaborative research projects, review articles, PAGES magazine highlights, community research perspectives, etc).
4. Advocate for the inclusion of early-career researchers when WGs are seeking additional participants.

Each PAGES working group has one ECN liaison. Below is the list of ECN working group liaisons.
