Early career researcher (ECR) reps

The ECR Forum represents the views and ideas of early career researchers from across the University.  

How it works

There are two reps per department / school or centre who meet three to four times a year with members of the RDP and the Doctoral College, representatives of the Researcher Concordat Steering Group and the Athena Swan implementation group. The Chair of the ECR Forum sits on the University Research and Innovation Committee (URIC) to report actions arising from the forum and represent ECR issues.

If you are interested in becoming a rep please get in contact with your department's current rep, the Chairs of the ECR Forum, or rdp@surrey.ac.uk.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion working group

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) working group has been set up as a part of ECR forum at the University of Surrey with the following objectives:

  • Gather information on the state of ED&I for ECRs at the University level to identify gaps and challenges
  • Create awareness within the University at different levels (ECR to Higher management) using the information
  • Propose short-term and long-term solutions to inform University policymakers to create an impact.

The group will initially focus on three areas: Athena Swan (gender equality), Race equality and LGBTQ+ equality. The focus will be expanded in future to other important areas including disability, neurodiversity, and mental health.

The Working Group meets approximately once every six weeks and is organized by Dr Armin Mustafa & Dr Giovanni Mirouh. Any ECR Rep is welcome to attend, contribute, or suggest agenda items.
