ESIP Community Fellows are graduate students and post-docs (<2 yrs since graduation) interested in bridging the gap between informatics and Earth Science. This fellowship provides fellows with a chance to work closely with professionals in an interdisciplinary, cross-sector group (ESIP collaboration area) on current Earth Science problems. Community fellows become engaged in ESIP collaboration areas, helping to document group activities on monthly virtual telecons and at ESIP’s semi-annual meetings. As fellows become more familiar with collaboration-area activities, they may choose to integrate their own research, which can result in publication and additional funding opportunities.
This opportunity has numerous benefits, including:
- Networking with professionals in your research field
- Opportunities to share your research with a broader audience
- Opportunities to learn collaboration best practices
- Exposure to potential career tracks – government, industry, academic
