A+ EMCR updates: 27 Aug 2020 issue

Dr Miles Andrews and Dr Meaghan Clough are the new editors
for Alfred Research Alliance EMCR updates
Hello CCS – Early/Mid-Career Researchers, Welcome to the new CCS - EMCR newsletter, designed as a quick and simple snapshot highlighting EMCR related programs or competitions happening around the A+ precinct and within the Faculty.

If you’re currently a research student or within 10 years post-PhD, then you’re an EMCR by our book, and we’re here to support you. This list is not meant to be exhaustive of all the available programs out there, just a curated list that we think might be of interest to CCS - EMCRs. For more programs, please check out the A+EMCR webpage and the ECR network page. See also recent news on the A+ EMCR website news page.

Please note, to access any of the recordings you need to be logged into your Monash email/google account.
