The Early-Mid Career Researchers (EMCR) committee aims to promote scientific exchange and oversee the professional development of early-mid career post docs and PhD students at the Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct (AMREP) site, within Monash University's Central Clinical School (CCS) and the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine (SPHPM), the Burnet Institute and the Baker Institute. Our goal is to represent the interests of EMCRs at the highest levels to ensure their involvement in decision making and key processes. We facilitate a number of initiatives, see detail below. Committee member contact details and minutes of meetings are maintained on the CCS Intranet, or alternatively you can contact us.
