Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

The main costs associated with running APECS comes in supporting our International Directorate Office located in Tromsø, Norway since 2009. We are very grateful to the Research Council of Norway, the UiT The Arctic University of Norway, and the Norwegian Polar Institute for providing the majority of the finances needed to keep all our activities centrally coordinated and running efficiently. Below is some information to help you learn more about these great organizations and the opportunities they have for early career researchers.


In addition, Murmansk Arctic State University funds a part-time APECS Officer for the APECS International Directorate located in Murmansk, Russia from July 2016 to February 2017. APECS is very grateful for this additional staff support.
