agu apecs 2013Join us for a panel discussion by experts in polar science and the cryosphere at the 2014 AGU annual meeting!

The discussion will address the exciting career opportunities and challenges faced by scientists who study frozen realms. The panel brings together scientists at various stages of their careers both within and outside of university settings, including Dr. Henrietta Edmonds (NSF Arctic Natural Science Program Director), Dr. Lonnie Thompson (Bryd Polar Research Center at The Ohio State University), Dr. Lora Koenig (Research Scientist National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), University of Colorado Boulder), and Dr. Chris Polashenski (Research Geophysicist at the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab (CRREL). The floor will be open for a moderated conversation on any aspect of careers in polar science that interests the audience.

This event is held in partnership between the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) and the AGU Cryosphere Focus Group, on Wednesday December 17th from 6-7:30 PM in Moscone South Mezzanine 270. After the panel, we will be continuing the evening of discussion and networking at the nearby pub John Colins (138 Minna Street) from 7:30-9:00. Join us there for free appetizers even if you can't make the panel. We welcome the attendance of those at all career stages!
