Studying social sciences gives us all plenty of opportunities to use scientific knowledge and skills, not only for a career in academia, but also in governance, community development, planning and many other areas. Learn with us about opportunities and challenges in career choices for young Arctic social science researchers, both inside and outside academia!
The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) will be organising a panel discussion on "Careers opportunities in Arctic Social Sciences" during the 9th International Congress on Arctic Social Sciences (ICASS) (8-12 June 2017, Umeå, Sweden), where you will have an opportunity to hear career experiences of our excellent panelists that we hope would be inspiring for your future career choices.
Join us on 8 June 2017 at 14:30 at Umeå University in room MC313.
Meet our panelists:
- Mare Pit (German Arctic Office / AWI, Germany)
- Anne-Lill Drugge (Centre for Sami Research (Cesam) - Vaartoe, Sweden)
- Gail Fondahl (University of Northern British Columbia, Canada)
- Katrin Stephen (IASS, Germany)
