May 28 AGU Cryosphere ECR forum w/ NSF, NASA program officers
Friday 28 May 2021
Location Online

The American Geophysical Union Cryosphere Sciences section is hosting a conversation between early career researchers and US funding agency program officers, to be hosted on Zoom from 12-2pm Eastern on Friday, May 28th.

This will be a rather informal event, but we hope to give ECRs time to ask any questions of NSF and NASA program officers during this challenging time. Topics will include ECR-specific impacts relating to COVID-19, all of our ongoing work to build a more just, equal, and inclusive research community, and open question and answer. We will liberally define early career and welcome all those interested in participating.

Please register & complete the pre-event survey to aid in guiding discussion.

Confirmed participants (subject to change):

Paul Cutler (NSF OPP) - Program Director, Glaciology, Ice Core Science, & Geomorphology

Roberto Delgado (NSF OPP) - Program Director, Arctic Observing Network

Thorsten Markus (NASA) - Cryospheric Science Program Manager

Jennifer Mercer (NSF OPP) - Acting Section Head, Arctic Sciences
