We are calling all early career professionals in environmental toxicology and chemistry: Whether you are a student about to graduate, a postdoctoral fellow or at the beginning of your professional career, the SETAC North America Early Career Committee (ECC) is here to support you on your journey! The ECC facilitates networking opportunities and strives to enhance the early career experience for SETAC members who are both preparing to take on their first professional roles and those who have taken their first of many steps on their career path.

The committee is in its second year, and while it has continued to grow in members, there are still many ways to get involved. Each new ECC member brings unique academic and professional experiences, which help SETAC North America better understand the needs of its early career community. All are welcome; early career professionals and early career enthusiasts alike! We want to hear from you. For more information, please visit the group page. For ECC event updates, job postings, career guidance and inspiration, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (@setac_ec) .
