The Early Career Researcher Programme at UCCRI is designed to provide skill development and support to graduate students and postdoctoral researchers within an interdisciplinary and collaborative research environment.

Open to all PhD students and Postdocs whose research is related, but not exclusive, to conservation and environmental issues or have a strong interest in this field and would like to meet researchers who work in this area, with a possibility of collaborating in the future. 

The programme will help to create new insight and understanding of different approaches and methodologies, and complement the training that is on offer within Departments and doctoral training programmes in the University.

Our programme is targeted at those whose research addresses conservation in the broadest sense and welcomes researchers from all six University Schools.
