EARLY CAREER COUNCIL
WHAT WE DO
The purpose of the Early Career Council (ECC) is to foster the development of the next generation of life detection scientists and technologists by providing visibility and engagement in community activities and a forum for identifying and discussing issues specific to early career individuals. Members of the ECC can participate in action groups and, in that capacity, can propose, lead and participate in NfoLD initiatives.
Develop ECC Community: Foster the development of early career scientists within NfoLD. Coordinate ECC membership to maintain a body of members representative of the life detection community.
Engage with NfoLD Action Groups: Involve early career scientists in NfoLD action groups. Coordinate community input to the Life Detection Forum (LDF) in coordination with the Engage action group.
Outreach and Education: Communicate relevant developments and activities via social media, NfoLD website, and webinars. Develop and maintain relationships with science journalists and the general public.
Establish ECC Presence at Conferences: Organize workshops or sessions at relevant conferences (including AbSciCon, AbGradCon, and AGU).
