Welcome to the ECS Coffee Hour

An informal chat about life, careers, and everything in between

Each month, we'll focus on a different topic of interest to early-career seabirders, and we'll invite senior scientists for informal conversations about their own career paths and insights. Feel free to join us whether you are early-career or early-career at heart.

Details of our past and upcoming meetings are listed below; if you'd like to suggest a future topic or guest, contact Juliet via e-mail (jslamb at URI dot edu) or Twitter (@project_pelican)
