Dear National Committee member,

The Early- and Mid-Career Researcher Forum of the Australian Academy of Science is the national voice of Australia’s emerging scientists, representing researchers up to 15 years post-PhD, irrespective of their professional appointment. Their national meeting Science Pathways 2016: Future Leaders is an opportunity for early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) from all disicplines to undertake professional development and network with other EMCRs from around the country.

We would greatly appreciate if you could circulate the notification of the event (below) to relevant researchers at your organisation.


Do you want to be a Future Leader?

Come along to Science Pathways 2016: Future Leaders<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-l-kyllutt-nljtyijhd-y/> to hear insights from nationally and internationally recognised leaders who will explain what leadership in their industry means. Take part in breakout sessions and networking events which will help develop your leadership skills.

Unlike any other conference you have attended, Science Pathways aims to provide professional development for all early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs), regardless of your discipline.

The conference is the fourth national meeting of the EMCR Forum<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-l-kyllutt-nljtyijhd-j/> of the Australian Academy of Science. The EMCR Forum is the national voice of Australia’s emerging scientists, representing researchers up to 15 years post-PhD, irrespective of their professional appointment. Sign up to receive their newsletter<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-l-kyllutt-nljtyijhd-t/>.

If you have caring responsibilities, Carer Grants are available to help facilitate your attendance. Simply apply by completing the relevant questions on the registration form. These grants have been generously sponsored by the University of Canberra and are open to all applicants regardless of affiliation.

You can register to attend Science Pathways now<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-l-kyllutt-nljtyijhd-h/> or find out more information about the speakers and the event online.

Would you like your trip to Science Pathways to be sponsored? Then enter 180 Seconds of Science.

If you had 180 seconds to tell us about your science—what would you say?

180 Seconds of Science<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-l-kyllutt-nljtyijhd-k/> is a video competition designed to showcase the enormous talent and hard work of EMCRs. So grab your phone or video camera and tell us—tell the world—what you do and why it’s your passion.

The winners will receive free registration and travel to Science Pathways 2016<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-l-kyllutt-nljtyijhd-u/> and a cash prize.

We would like to see more from regional EMCRs. So we’ve created the Australian Regional Future Leader category, which is a dedicated to EMCRs that work outside a mainland capital city. The EMCR Forum is running the competition in conjunction with our friends at the Royal Society of New Zealand Early Career Forum<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-l-kyllutt-nljtyijhd-o/>. So bring on the Trans-Tasman rivalry and let's show the world the amazing science that Australian EMCRs do.

Follow the competition on twitter @EMCRForum<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-l-kyllutt-nljtyijhd-b/> and @RSNZECR<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-l-kyllutt-nljtyijhd-n/> or get involved using #180Science.

We can’t wait to see your 180 Seconds of Science!
