Early career academic outreach network

  • Oxford Early Career Academic Outreach Network blog
    The Oxford Early Career Academic Outreach Network was founded in 2013 by Dr James Castell & Dr Eleanor David, two University of Oxford fixed-term early career academics who were managing portfolio careers that included professional outreach work.
    The Network aims to connect early career academics (DPhil students, postdocs or fixed-term lecturers from any subject area) with opportunities to do schools outreach in Oxford and further afield, as well as to provide them with appropriate training opportunities and recognition for their work at an institutional level. This network, which celebrated its first birthday in MT 2014, is intended to complement, not replace, current training provision elsewhere within the collegiate University and facilitates communication between the early career academic community and schools outreach projects across Oxford.
