Early career researchers

Who are we?

The MARIS early career researchers (ECRs) are a group of post-graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and other early career researchers (within seven years of completing their PhD) who are currently involved in the marine interdisciplinary work at the centre or have a strong interest in conducting interdisciplinary marine research. 

What do we do?

We aim to further the marine landscape of early career researchers at UCT through creating opportunities to learn, network and collaborate. Through our various activities we aim to:

  • Engage with and represent ECRs within MARIS & UCT
  • Contribute towards the cohesive outreach and capacity building of marine ECRs at UCT
  • Develop initiatives to support and integrate ECRs who work within the three science foci of MARIS
