Eligibility for the early career researcher: the Scientific Committee is looking for an early career researcher who is developing a relevant methodological track record. An early career investigator is considered to be one who is (i) no more than 7 years after their last education or professional qualification (e.g. bachelor, diploma, masters, doctorate, etc.); and (ii) not having held an academic (or equivalent research-orientated) appointment for longer than 7 years in total. Career interruptions or delays for the purpose of childrearing, illness, health-related family responsibilities or non-research clinical training (residency, etc.) do not count towards these 7 years. This is a mentored position for up-and-coming early career researchers in the field, where the role is observational, and they do not have voting rights.
