NCEAS is a diverse research community composed of scientists at many career stages filling many research roles including Center Associates, Early Career Researchers, Visiting Scientists, Post-docs, Analysts, Research Scientists, and Student Interns.
Who are the Center Associates?
Center associates are senior research scientists who develop and support their own research projects and employ research staff. They work in and across disciplines such as social science, geography, ecology, fisheries, and genetics.
Who are the Early Career Researchers (ECRs)?
ECRs are research scientists with graduate degrees working at NCEAS in roles such as post-docs, analysts, or research associates. We are continuously building and maintaining a community that fosters collaboration, development, and growth as we navigate the early stages of our careers.
Who are the Student Interns?
Student interns are undergraduate and graduate students from the UCSB campus who work at NCEAS on projects relating to data science, communications, computer programming, and ecology research.
Who are the Visiting Scientists?
Visiting scientists are researchers who come to NCEAS for a short period of time. Some are summer-only visitors for whom NCEAS is a summer research "home". Some are on sabbatical for several months or a year.
This is a lunch time forum every Wednesday (12:15pm - 1:15pm) in the NCEAS lounge. Talks or discussions are led by a member of the NCEAS community or a visiting scientist from a working group or other connection. Subjects can be a research topic, a technology or workflow question, a community issue, or a career development opportunity.

A new NCEAS tradition! We meet every Tuesday from 10:30 am - 11:00 am. This is an informal time where we share what's going on with the rest of the NCEAS community. And we drink coffee.
Staff organizer: Ginger Gillquist
This is an NCEAS-wide lunch pot-luck that occurs once per month, usually on the second Thursday, from 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm. NCEAS provides the lettuce and salad dressing. Everyone signs up to bring a salad vegetable or topping. It's always delicious!

Working Group Mixers
This is a chance for NCEAS residents and visiting working group members to meet, socialize, and network. Usually a mixer is organized during a working group's initial meeting, at the end of the work day (typically 5 - 6 pm). NCEAS provides the beer and pretzels!
