#ECRchat ...

... is a global fortnightly discussion for the early career researcher community via Twitter. The chat is intended mainly for the discussion of post-PhD career issues and we welcome anyone who is interested, who has questions, or who has advice to share. We hope that PhD students, postdocs, and junior faculty will all benefit from the advice and resources collected here. We would also love to hear advice and questions from those who have left (or are considering leaving) academia, and from senior faculty, including those who advise PhD students and other ECRs.

Some of the recent twitter discussions which have been storified include ...
