Welcome to the Second Temple Early Career Academy (STECA)!
STECA is an international network for doctoral students and early career researchers, run by a Steering Committee, and currently based at the University of Birmingham. Our aim is to create a virtual common room to support early career researchers wherever they are based. STECA is dedicated to support and nurture a new generation of researchers in a challenging Higher Education and external environment, both in the UK and internationally.
We post a monthly blog covering topics like:
- Job applications and the knotty question of cover letters
- Career progress, promotion, career breaks
- Applying for research funding, post-docs
- Careers outside academia
- Networking and collaborating
And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @stecacareers!
