The 2nd Early Career eCSE Panel Observers call

The 2nd Early Career eCSE Panel Observers eCSE call has closed.


The eCSE panel meeting is the meeting that reviews eCSE proposals and decides on which proposals to fund. As part of our commitment to encouraging and developing Early Career Researchers, we will be offering a small number of early career researchers the opportunity to attend the eCSE panel meeting as observers. The aim is here is to give early career researchers a better insight into this competitive selection process to assist in the preparation of funding proposals.


If you are an Early Career Researcher working in a scientific area in EPSRC's or NERC's remit and would value the opportunity to attend the panel meeting, we would like to hear from you.

If your scientific area falls within the remit of EPSRC then to be eligible, you will also need to meet EPSRC's person specification for an early career researcher. See here.

If your scientific area falls within the remit of NERC and you are uncertain of your career status then please contact the ARCHER Helpdesk (support@archer.ac.uk) to discuss your eligibility as an Early Career Researcher.
