Early Careers

The Early Careers Forum is for members from both industry and academia in the early stages of their careers, and for those who’d like to support the next generation. We particularly encourage PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, and early career researchers to participate.

Our forum has two broad aims:

1) Train the next generation of researchers working on metamaterials. This includes training for grant writing, interview skills, entrepreneurial know-how, as well as technical skills.

2) Facilitate collaboration, networking, and create bridges across disciplines. We will bring together early career researchers in academia and industry, as well as different areas of research. Innovation is often at the boundary between different fields, and often led by early stage researchers.
