and/or conferences, promoting the specific research area. Furthermore, the YECREA
representative works to inform early-career scholars about events in the field and
take part in organising events, such as pre-conference workshops or meetings.

The 'young' in young scholar is not a measure of age, but of career progression.

Thus, all scholars in non-tenure positions (e.g. PhD's and postdocs) are welcome
to apply,

- A heading with your name and the specific position you are applying for
- Details on your current university, position and progression
- A brief description of your research

- A brief statement on your aspirations for improving early-career research

The managing team of YECREA (Corinna Lauerer, Norbert Šinković and Johan Farkas)
will evaluate applications.

The final decision on candidates will be taken in collaboration with the managing
teams of each section/TWG.
