Current Early-career Members Network (EMN) Committee

The EMN aims to provide a forum for metabolomics researchers at the start of their professional career and serve the early-career members of the Metabolomics Society. Aspirations include, but are not limited to: strengthen communication and collaboration, encourage opportunities and invention, support developmental learning and enjoy professional growth.

History & Role

The Early-career Members Network (EMN) was established in October 2013 through the Metabolomics Society Task Group as part of an initiative to develop activities and ideas and determine how to best serve her members – and especially her Early-career members. The EMN was initially run by nine early career researchers: Sasta Putri (EMN Chair), Vincent Asiago, David Liesenfeld, Thomas Payne, Nicholas Rattray, Ralf Weber, Evangelina Daskalaki, Justin van der Hooft, and Gabriel Valbuena. In 2015, the EMN expanded to a total of twelve international members across a variety of metabolomics fields[1]. The mission of the EMN was to recognize the value and importance of early career members, to ensure that their views are heard and acted upon, ultimately improving their experience of metabolomics science and the community as a whole [2]. The EMN is dedicated to all Metabolomics Society members who are within 5 years of completing their higher degrees and comprises members from industry, government and academia. The EMN is active at the Metabolomics Society Conference through its workshops and Welcome Reception. The EMN workshops contain career development sessions but also scientifically based topics aimed at improving the general understanding of basic metabolomics principles. Outside of the conference, the EMN hosts well-visited Webinars, a Facebook page, a Bursary program, and now the newly live Wiki page. The EMN is always seeking new initiatives to better serve its early careers members and the Metabolomics Society as a whole.
