Communications Officer, Engineering Researcher Society

On 24th November I was elected Communications Officer of the Engineering Researcher Society in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Sheffield. ERS is the professional society for early career, post-doctoral and contract research staff in the Faculty and exists to promote their interests, support and develop a vibrant research community, facilitating training and career development opportunities in this under-represented group.

This is an exciting opportunity – after a year of excellent growth, the ERS is seeking to consolidate its position within the Faculty. My role will be to ensure that the ERS is embedded in the life of the Faculty, connects effectively with other researcher support bodies across the University, and reaches out to researchers past, present and future to promote the support it can offer to those seeking rewarding, valuable and valued careers in Engineering research.
