Early career researchers

The Early Career Academic (ECA) cohort represents some 20% of the total academic population in the Faculty of Science.

This group is recognised as a vital component of the Faculty's research activities and profile.

To facilitate the establishment and growth of the research of these individuals at Newcastle, and in recognition of the existing world-class expertise in the latest research thinking and methodology this cohort brings to the University, the Faculty has put in place a number of initiatives directed at Early Career Academics.

These initiatives are intended to complement research assistance received from their home School and schemes administered by the Research Grants Committee.
