The Early Career Researcher chapter is a new chapter of the Astronomical Society of Australia (ASA) that will act to support the needs and development of Early Career Researchers in the Australian astronomy community. It does this through the following priorities:

  1. Inform the members about opportunities for professional training and support
  2. Provide training for the members in areas of professional development
  3. Connect the members with each other, and also with senior researcher mentors, providing a support network
  4. Acting as an advocacy and representation body for its members

You must already be a member of the ASA to join. Senior astronomers and students are also very welcome. Email the chapter steering committee at asa.ecr.chapter@gmail.com to join.
