ECR WORKSHOP - 18TH APRIL (10-12.30) 

Dedicated to Early Career Researchers, our special morning workshop on 18th April precedes the start ofhte main conference.  It was a popular part of our first Translation conference last year and will once again highlight the plethora of resources available to help researchers from DPUK, our partners (such as Alzheimer's Research UK), and the wider dementia research community.

Applicant skills and experience 

ECR: Definition

DPUK’s formal definition of an ECR is an individual who is within ten years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or an individual who is within six years of their first academic appointment. These durations exclude any period of career break, e.g. for family care or health reasons. The ‘first academic appointment’ is defined as the first paid contract of employment, either full-time or part-time, which lists research and/or teaching as the primary functions.
