Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


We are happy to provide you with more great career advice from two workshops held this past winter.

The Permafrost Young Researchers Network (PRYN) and the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) held a career development workshop on Sunday 12 December 2010, prior to the 2010 Fall American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting in San Francisco, CA, USA. For more information on the workshop and to watch the great videos, visit

To help expose young polar researchers to the amazing opportunities that are available to help you fund your studies and research, APECS hosted a Research Funding Seminar in Tromso, Norway in conjunction with the Arctic Frontiers Conference in 2011. For more information on workshop and the videos, visit The Tips and Tricks for Funding Proposals is particularly good - and quite funny! 

We thank the US National Science Foundation for funding provided to Jenny Baeseman as part of the Arctic System Science Thermokarst Project Grant to create these videos. We also thank Sam German for video editing.
