The early career researcher is a PhD student or postdoc, who has only been in their field of research for a few years. Early career researchers may be a force for change in research processes and technologies, flexible and willing to experiment with new systems, but this effect may be moderated by the more conservative researchers who work with, and in some cases supervise, them.
