Early Career OFI Researchers (ECOFIRE) is a network run by and for OFI's graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and undergraduates.

Our goal is to provide professional development opportunities, strengthen connections between Early Career Researchers, and create a sense of community within the Ocean Frontier Institute.

What we do

ECOFIRE members can participate in conference & event planning, network with other Early Career Researchers both formally and informally, and benefit from professional development workshops and opportunities.

Getting involved is a great way to meet new people, collaborate on research projects, build your leadership skills, find new academic and job opportunities and more! We also send out a monthly newsletter to all our members, that highlights upcoming events and information of interest.

Who can join

Any postdoctoral fellow, graduate student, or undergraduate student affiliated with the Ocean Frontier Institute is welcome!
