Early Career Researchers

At the Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing (WRIHW) we include a focus on the importance of nurturing its early career research (ECR) community. Our ECR community mirrors the interdisciplinary commitment of the WRIHW, with PhD students in anthropology illuminating a brighter side to ayahuasca tourism in South America, peers in bioscience ironing out some truths about dementia, and a wide variety in-between. Improving health and wellbeing is not restricted to a particular academic discipline, and neither are we.

The main goals of the ECR committee are as follows:

  1. To increase the sense of community between ECRs within the WRIHW
  2. To increase the visibility of ECRs within the WRIHW, and to wider audiences
  3. To offer ECRs within the WRIHW opportunities to develop their research, CV’s, and understanding of what a career in research can look like
