Marzena Kaczmarska - Svalbard Science Forum in Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen
I have a M.Sc. in Management and Protection of Natural Environment and a Ph.D. in glaciology (calving of Arctic tidewater glaciers). After the completion of my PhD I had worked with Antarctic ice cores as a post-doc at the Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromso for 3 years. I had spent 2 consecutive field seasons at the deep ice core drilling site in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica and I was several times in field in Svalbard.
In 2005 I started working with international science management. First at the Climate and Cryosphere International Project Office (CliC IPO) in Tromsø, then at the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) Secretariat in Cambridge, UK, and finally at the Svalbard Science Forum in Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen. My job is about project management (ARCFAC project), and coordination of research through organization of meetings and workshops, collecting and dissemination of information (e.g. research project database RiR), and networking.
