Early Career Researchers (ECRs)


The Alzheimer’s Research UK Early Careers Network is a group of researchers at various stages in their careers who meet for social and career related events. If you are an early careers researcher (post-doc, PhD or undergraduate level) in neurodegeneration or dementia, or have an interest in these research themes, then you can join the Alzheimer’s Research UK Early Careers Network.

To join or find out more, email the Early Career Representatives (Francesco Tamagnini, Nora Bengoa-Vergniory and Franziska Guenther) stating your career stage and research interest.

The Dementia Researcher website - has been developed by the office of the National Director for Dementia Research with support from Alzheimer's Research UK, Alzheimer's Society and the Medical Research Council - provides a variety of support and resources for early career researchers – covering everything from jobs and funding opportunities, how to produce grant proposals, opportunities to ‘ask a dementia expert’, and a range of podcasts.
