Early Career Women Network (ECWN)

About us

ECWN is supported by the University of St Andrews and led by: 

  • Camilla Mørk Røstvik, Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, School of Art History
  • Sarah Bennison, Research Fellow, School of Philosophy Anthropology & Film Studies - Social Anthropology
  • Stephanie Yardley, Research Fellow, School of Mathematics and Statistics - Applied Mathematics

EWCN provides a space for like-minded, self-defining women to come together to network and discuss topics of mutual interest in a supportive environment. ECWN will organise invited talks and networking sessions, among other events, that will focus on the many-faceted working lives of early career women. We define 'early career’ as women in non-senior academic posts (for example first lecturing post), research fellows, postdocs, non-academic staff, final year PhD students etc, including with career breaks.

To join the mailing list please email: ecwn@st-andrews.ac.uk 

News and events

Weds 13 Dec 2017 11am-1pm, Medical Sciences Building (MBS 103: Seminar Room 1)

This will be a casual affair with coffee, tea and cakes (vegan and gluten free will be provided, plus milk alternative for coffee). Our idea was that it would be nice to have a bit of time to get to know each other while eating cake. We hope you agree! Please sign-up on Eventbrite

Early Career Women Network (ECWN) launch event lunch Thur 30 Nov 2017, 12-2pm, Parliament Hall, University of St Andrews, St Mary's College, South Street.

All staff are invited to the launch of the ECW Network, aimed at providing a space for like-minded, self-defining women to come together to discuss topics of mutual interest in a supportive environment. The network will organise invited talks and networking sessions, among other events, that will focus on the many-faceted working lives of early career women (final year PhD up to eight years post-PhD). The network is run by early career women, for early career women and will kick-off with an invited talk by Professor Aileen Fyfe, a historian who co-edited Academic Women Now! (2016) and is currently co-organising a project on the experiences of mid-career women here at St Andrews. After the talk there will be a chance to discuss what people would want from the ECW Network.
