Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


I feel September is always a month filled with possibilities  and excitement for the future. This issue of the APECS newsletter has a great number of opportunities for early career polar researchers - meetings, workshops, jobs, and opportunities to share our science and our experiences. Please take a few moments to look for possibilities for yourself!

- Benjamin Beall, APECS Vice-President
