Graduate Junction is a website designed to help early career researchers make contact with others with similar research interests regardless of which department, instiution or country they work in. Set up by two graduate researchers at Durham University, it has proved very popular with researchers and academics alike. Since the launch in May 2008 over 2000 researchers have registered in the UK and researchers from more than 40 countries have joined.
Once registered you can search for fellow researchers by keyword, institution, department, supervisor or name. Alternatively, you can search The Graduate Junction’s on-line researchgroups, allowing you to find and communicate with a number of other researchers sharing your research interest.
So far, the Imperial researchers who have registered are from the Electronic Engineering department so if you’re based at Imperial in either the Civil Engineering or Earth Sciences and Engineering departments have a think about registering.
