Purpose

The EECERA Early Career Researchers’ SIG began at EECERA Conference 2014. The SIG considers and addresses issues that affect early career researchers in the field of early childhood education. We are a wide and diverse range of research-engaged individuals in the international field of early childhood education, including post-doctoral researchers within a decade following their viva, doctoral and Master’s research students and those engaging in research for the first time as part of their professional work. The purpose of this SIG is to consider and address issues that affect early career researchers in the field of early childhood education.
