Early Career Researcher Committee (ECR)

The Early Career Researcher Committee represents the students and early career researchers of ISEK.  The committee was formed through a recent call for participation to all student and postdoc Society members, which received an outstanding response from the community, reinforcing the timeliness of this effort.

Committee Initiatives
  • Targeted ECR Newsletter: The quarterly newsletter focuses on information pertinent to PhD students, postdocs and other early career researchers.
  •  DeLuca symposium: From 2023, the ECR committee is responsible for organizing the DeLuca symposium. This symposium will take place in ~July on the “off-conference year”. The organization of this symposium will be supported by our ECR DeLuca award winners from the previous ISEK congress.  Our 2022 DeLuca award winners were: Manuela Besomi, Marco Ghislieri and Bryan Schlink.
  • Communications: Watch this space as our ECR committee works with our Communications Committee to ensure that our communication with members and beyond is efficient and effective.

The ISEK Council invites members who are students and early career researchers to contribute to the Society’s leadership by serving on the ECR Committee.
