Description

The Political Studies Association (PSA) is committed to supporting the next generation of political scientists through its Early Career Network (ECN). The PSA ECN exists to represent the interests of postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and early career academics within the PSA. It opens a space that specifically addresses the interests and needs of postgraduates and early career researchers in an independent, peer-based environment, while still getting support and guidance from the Executive Committee of the PSA when required.

You can be a member of the PSA's ECN from when you started a doctoral degree until three years after the completion of a doctoral viva. Only £20 a year Membership - it's a full PSA membership, at a reduced price. Click here to join.

Our ECN Welcome Pack offers tips on topics such as publishing, conferences, networking and teaching, which are all central to the PhD experience.
The ECN committee invites members to apply for grants, of up to £600, to support events they are organising. Events should be held at applicants’ home institution and free for ECN members to attend.
ECN members are eligible to apply to the PSA's travel grant scheme which enables young scholars and graduate students to present papers at overseas political studies/science conferences.
