The ECR Subcommittee was set up in 2009 with the purpose of representing the ECR members of the society. ECRs are the future of SSM and it is important that they have a voice in the Society. The Subcommittee meets regularly to discuss matters relevant to ECRs, keep in contact with ECRs through the dedicated email accounts and ECR survey as well as provide specific services to them (for example, the jobs list and gig trail – see below for more information). The Subcommittee acts on a rolling basis where each member serves a term of three years and new spaces are made vacant each year by departing members. It’s a great opportunity to network with senior academics, peers and colleagues, and to get involved in discussions about the future of the research in this field.
