Survey on challenges for Early Career Researchers

Dear IALE members,

We invite you to participate in a survey about the experiences of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) in the biological, ecological and environmental sciences.

This is a global survey that will contribute to understanding the specific challenges ECRs face in progressing through their academic careers, and balancing work and personal life. The survey will also provide insights into the unprecedented impact that COVID-19 has had on academics at the early career stage. 

What do you need to know?

  • The survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete
  • It is anonymous and all questions are voluntary
  • It is open to all Early Career Researchers working in the biological, ecological and environmental sciences (including related disciplines such as environmental social science)
  • The survey closes at midnight Australian Eastern Standard Time on Friday, 28th August 2020.
  • For any enquiries about the research, please contact Dr Catarina Silva, Dr Cecilia Villacorta-Rath or Dr Claudia Benham.  

We understand that it is hard to find time in a busy work day to complete surveys, and we appreciate your time and contributions to this study. 

Best wishes, 

Dr Catarina Silva, Dr Cecilia Villacorta-Rath and Dr Claudia Benham
