Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Panel Discussion - Non-academic or alternative careers in polar research from APECS Webinars on Vimeo.

After spending so much time at university, some of us may not be able to comprehend life outside of it. In this webinar, a panel of speakers discuss career opportunities in polar science outside the university setting.

Mentor Panel: Faustine Bernadac (Polar Field Services), Kristina Creek (ARCUS), Dorte Dissing (ABR Environmental Research and Services), Kriss Rokkan Iversen (SALT, Norway), Angela Matz (U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service)

Recorded on 22 February 2011.

This video is part of an online lecture series coordinated by APECS, US NSF ARCSS Thermokarst Project, and the University of Canterbury to help early career polar researchers navigate their careers. For more information on the full series, visit
