Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

We invite applications of early career scientists to attend a Community Earth System Model (CESM) Polar Modeling Workshop, August 12-16, 2019 at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO, USA. The workshop is supported by the National Science Foundation and will include about 20 early career (graduate student, postdoc, < 7 years since Ph.D.) polar scientists. 
Workshop participants will gain hands-on experience planning, designing, executing, and analyzing earth system modeling experiments to understand changing Polar climates and to explore better methods to integrate models and observations. Participants will engage in advanced activities focused specifically on capacity building for using CESM in polar research (e.g., sea ice, land ice, atmosphere, ocean, land, paleoclimate).

The CESM Polar Modeling Workshop will follow directly from the Annual CESM Tutorial held August 5-9, 2019. Prospective participants who have not attended the CESM Tutorial should apply for both the CESM Tutorial and the CESM Polar Modeling workshop. Prospective participants who have previously attended the CESM Tutorial (or have equivalent experience) should apply for just the CESM Polar Modeling Workshop.

Admitted participants will receive travel funding to cover air fare, lodging and per diem during the workshop.

Applications must be completed online. Additional application materials, including a curriculum vitae and letter of reference, will be requested at the end of the online form.

Application deadline: 8 March 2019
