Supporting new brain researchers

For Early Career Researchers (ECRs), including PhD students, we offer professional support, development and mentoring. Supporting new brain researchers is critical for retaining their scientific talents and ensuring future excellence in Australian brain research.

Sharing experiences

Undertaking a PhD is a challenging time that requires intense focus and dedication to your research. One of our Centre Scholars, Dan Fehring, shares his tips on managing your work and wellbeing during a PhD.

ECR Committee

Our Early Career Researcher Committee continues to grow and represent our emerging brain researchers from multiple disciplines across Australia. The Committee has implemented an inter-lab exchange program, travel awards and state-based events to foster networking and collaboration.

Fellows and Scholars from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function came together for an Early Career Researchers retreat in 2019. The annual retreat is a great way for these young brain researchers to exchange ideas, discuss collaborations and bond over their research.
