About Early Career Researcher Events

The ECR committee organises a variety of events throughout the year.  These include regular PhD student and postdoctoral researcher social meetings (SPAM), career development workshops, postdoctoral researcher breakfasts, and contributing to the organisation of the UQ ECR symposium.

QBI regularly hosts nationally and internationally recognised neuroscience researchers to present a seminar and meet with ECRs. A full list of the seminar series is available. ECRs can elect to have lunch in a small-group setting with the seminar speaker immediately after the seminar.
