Tyndall Early Career Network (TECN)

The Tyndall Early Career Network (TECN) is made up of early career researchers (MPhil, PhD and contract researchers) affiliated with the Tyndall Centre. TECN supports researchers by facilitating connections with other members of the Tyndall Centre, assisting with career development, and exchanging ideas, experiences and knowledge.

TECN coordinates several activities across the Tyndall Centre partner institutions:

  • Not4Experts webinars: The Not4Experts series hosts presentations on relevant climate-related topics presented using non-technical language for Tyndall researchers in other fields.
  • Writing retreats: TECN hosts writing retreats where early career researchers have the opportunity to focus on a key writing task with their colleagues.
  • #TECNwrite: TECN representatives organize writing sessions at individual institutions and as part of simultaneous sessions coordinated on Twitter using the #TECNwrite hashtag.
  • PhD conference: TECN regularly organizes a PhD conference to bring together Tyndall PhD students and those from other institutions to present their climate-related research in a friendly and supportive environment.
  • Early career representation on Tyndall Council: TECN represents the views of Tyndall-affiliated early career researchers on the Tyndall Centre’s governing body, the Tyndall Council. The current TECN representatives on the Council are Dan Thorman and Mark Wilson.
