Dr Roxana Cavalcanti, ECR Ambassador

Being an ECR is such an exciting time where you can begin to forge your own way into academia.  It’s full of opportunities to work on some exciting research, collaborate and learn from other academics and share your work across the community.  However, it is also a hugely challenging, competitive environment which can be difficult to navigate.

At Brighton there are so many opportunities and resources for ECRs so if you need help then this is a good place to start!!  You will find news about events and training that take place internally at the University of Brighton and tips about developing your research and your professional profile, both within the academy and beyond.  As part of that, as ECR Ambassador I want to ensure that you have a voice within the university and I really want to hear what you would find useful so if you have ideas then let me or your School representatives know.
