Opportunities for Early Career Researchers

EPICUR > Research > Opportunities for Early Career Researchers

With more than 39,.000 young scholars pursuing research in more than 150 disciplinary and interdisciplinary fields, the EPICUR alliance contributes significantly to the advancement of early career research in Europe. In order to harness and enhance the energy and innovation of this community, EPICUR seeks to build a network for the early career researchers of its eight partner universities. As a first step in building this network, EPICUR will use its web and social media platforms to share resources and opportunities for early career researchers across the alliance from within the alliance, by amplifying Calls for Papers and Calls for Applications, sharing relevant events and job opportunities, pooling resources and connecting like-minded researchers.  

Visit our website regularly for interesting updates and feel free to share any information you may deem relevant for Early Career Researchers within EPICUR. If you would like to contribute, just send an email to: contact@epicur.education
