Title: Working with Northern Communities to Build Collaborative Research Partnerships: Perspectives from an Early Career Researcher

Working with northern communities is a part of Arctic research in Canada. I will discuss my experiences from my graduate and post-doctoral work as a natural scientist working with communities in Nunavut, Nunavik and the NWT. I will talk about how early career researchers can engage with communities, co-develop research questions, and create meaningful training programs with communities. This will include discussing opportunities, mechanisms, and barriers to engaging in community collaborative research in northern Canada. I will also expand on some ideas from a co-authored essay (Tondu et al. 2014, Arctic), and talk about specific examples of how I implemented these practices in my own work as an ecologist.
