Abstract
Early career researchers in particle physics face a unique set of challenges. Newcomers toany experiment face steep learning curves, particularly with the familiarisation of software andinternal standard procedure. The junior rank typical of early career researchers can also meanless agency or influence within a larger collaboration, and job insecurity brings further additionalchallenges, such as migration for work and a resulting lack of a consistent support network. Thisproceedings will discuss existing early career initiatives at LHCb, including the ‘Laura Bassiinitiative’, which brings together junior collaboration members interested in increasing diversitywithin the collaboration, and the ‘Starterkit’ initiative, which provides introductory tutorials onLHCb software and relevant physics topics.
