Early Career Researcher Network


The Challenger Society’s Early Career Researcher Network is open to anyone who self identifies as an early career researcher in the marine sciences. We welcome undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs and faculty members, as well as project managers and other commercial sector associates within the marine sciences.

The aims of the network are:

1.  to link with fellow Early Career Researchers and share expertise, news and opportunities

2.  to link with other networks in the UK and internationally

3.  to benefit from the Challenger Society framework and events to foster collaboration among groups and with senior researchers

4.  to foster and support diversity at all levels of marine science

The Challenger Society for Marine Sciences recognises that Early Career Researchers (ECRs) have a critical role in the advancement of ocean sciences and sponsors events and activities to support them. If you are interested in joining the network or for more information, do not hesitate to get in touch with the ECR Network Coordinator, Alejandra Sanchez-Franks, at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton (alsf@noc.ac.uk).

Join our network today to stay tuned on the latest news and opportunities for ECRs, shaping the future of marine sciences in the UK.

Ocean Challenge search function
