Upcoming event – EMCRs in STEM & HASS: shared journeys & futures

Date: Tuesday 28th NovemberTime: 2pm to 3pm (AEDT)

Location: Online via Zoom

This session brings together diverse viewpoints of early and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEM), alongside humanities, arts, and social sciences (HASS). It will highlight the challenges and opportunities faced by these emerging scholars in their respective domains. It is an exploration how EMCRs in STEM and HASS perceive and navigate the academic landscape, emphasising the distinct epistemologies and research cultures inherent to each field. Central to this exploration is the invaluable contribution of EMCRs to cross-disciplinary research.

The session highlights the importance of collaborative efforts and mutual understanding between STEM and HASS, acknowledging the rich, innovative potential. It will also offer practical strategies for fostering interdisciplinary cooperation among EMCRs, to enhance the scope and impact of their research. Frame the narrative positively, e.g., develop communication channels tailored to interdisciplinary contexts, create shared platforms for knowledge exchange, and advocate for institutional support that recognises the needs of EMCRs in both STEM and HASS. By embracing these approaches, the session posits that EMCRs can effectively contribute to advancing the frontiers of knowledge while also enriching their individual academic journeys.
