MOSAiC is the largest Arctic research project of our times. Frozen into the ice, the German research icebreaker Polarstern has been drifting with the same ice floe through the Central Arctic from mid of October until the end of July when the ice floe eventually disintegrated into many small pieces. During those ten months, hundreds of scientists conducted field research on the polar atmosphere, ocean, ecology, the physical properties of the ice and biogeochemical relationships between all this, while the floe travelled from the Siberian Seas to the Fram Strait. Among those scientists have been many Master students, PhD-students, early Post-Docs, in short: Early career researchers (ECRs).Read more ...

As many of you already know, this past August Gerlis moved on from her position as Executive Director of APECS, which she held for seven years, to become the new Executive Secretary of IASC, a fantastic opportunity for both her and IASC.Read more ...
A day of insight hosted by APECSSA - Wisdom from experienced scientists.
We have enjoyed a very successful day on 15 September 2020 via zoom (over 70 participants from around the globe), gaining valuable insight and tips to keep in mind and draw inspiration from as researchers at the beginning of our careers - or otherwise, as mentioned by some of the speakers, starting out at the bottom. The morning was more than rhetoric, although plenty of phrases stood out.Read more ...
