Seabird Group Seabird Group

Early Career Researcher

The Seabird Group is working hard to provide opportunities for early career seabirders. Along with sharing relevant job/volunteering and funding opportunities on our social media, we run our ‘Seabirder Spotlight’ feature in our newsletter. This feature is designed to share information on different seabird related roles, career pathways and for contributors to offer advice for early-career seabirders. We are also running a ‘Seabird Paper Roundup’ where we highlight work authored by early-career seabirders. If you have recently published a paper and would like us to showcase your work, please email it to:


New to 2023/24, we have launched our Guillemates initiative. The Guillemates is an early-career buddy system designed to offer networking and support for early-career seabirders. We hope to run this annually so get in touch if you are interested in being a part of the next round of Guillemates.
