To promote diversity, equity, and inclusion we believe it’s important that ‘early career’ is not just defined by age. Some scientists take career breaks, or they can come to science later in life. The best way to know if a researcher is early career is to ask them if that’s how they identify.
STEMM Global early career scientists comprise undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, junior faculty, lecturers, technicians, and those making their first move into the world outside academia. Early career scientists are the key to the future, so its important that we as a Society do all that we can to support them.
