The Executive Committee of ASBDD has welcomed the formation of a sub-committee of early/mid career researchers (EMCR). This sub-committee consists of early/mid-career researchers interested in supporting their peers and promoting early/mid career researchers through the ASBDD.

The aim of the early/mid-career researcher sub-committee is to foster early/mid-career ASBDD members through a variety of channels:

  • To provide a support network for ASBDD early/mid-career researchers through ASBDD membership
  • To provide an avenue for early/mid-career researchers to voice their concerns in regards to psychiatric research and the activities of the ASBDD
  • To provide peer support and/or mentoring for early/mid-career researchers
  • To provide an avenue of communication and promotion from early/mid-career researchers back to the ASBDD regarding ASBDD supported projects.

The members of the sub-committee invite all early to mid-career researchers to take part in these activities. Researchers will be considered early/mid-career if they are less than 10 years post-PhD, although this wouldn’t be expected to be enforced (other than for awards etc).
