Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

As interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and convergent science collaborations become more common when addressing big ideas in Arctic research, scientists require the tools and skills to effectively communicate about their work with various audiences and collaborate across disciplinary boundaries.

Through this program, the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) seeks to:

  • train early career scientists (ECS) with the communication skills needed to engage with various audiences, from non-scientists to researchers from other disciplines, and to collaborate with researchers from fields and sectors other than their own,
  • engage them in the research policy process,
  • facilitate connection with Federal program managers and senior researchers, and
  • give an opportunity to present their work without the expense of traveling to a conference.

IARPC seeks eight ECS to enroll in this, the second cohort of this program. The ECSs will identify a collaboration team of interest, participate in and contribute to IARPC Collaboration’s work, and produce a “lightning talk” about their own research to be delivered as part of the IARPC Public Webinar Series and at a collaboration team meeting. Examples from the previous cohort may be viewed here.

Application deadline: Sunday, 3 February 2019 at 23:59 EST (4:59 GMT)

More information and how to apply is available on the IARPC Website.
