ECAN Engineering

Engineering Early Career Academic Network

The Engineering ECAN (Early Career Academic Network) is working to improve communications between ECAs within Engineering and ensure that opportunities are provided for ECAs to develop networks and gain knowledge in academic career development.

What is an ECA?

UNSW Early Career Academics (ECAs) meet all of the following criteria:

  • UNSW Academic staff within seven years (relative to opportunity) of having been awarded a PhD or recognised equivalent;
  • Appointment is at Level A-C.

The term ECA includes any employee who fits the requirements above, irrespective of whether the employment is:

  • in a research-focused role, an education-focused role, or a combined research and education role; and
  • in a continuing or fixed-term position.

Additionally, you must also take into account your relevant career opportunity and interruptions.

If you have any questions, please email us at ecanexec@unsw.edu.au

What does ECAN do?

We provide support to ECAs and opportunities for young academics to create new collaboration within the Faculty and across Faculties.

We run a lot of events throughout the year including a promotions event and speed mentoring. To stay up to date subscribe to our email list by contacting HR or contact us via email.
