Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

POLAR serves as a point of contact for the international polar research community for research opportunities in Canada's Arctic and to collaborate with Canadian researchers in the Antarctic. The Canada-Sweden Arctic Research Station Early Career Scientist Exchange Program is a pilot project that could develop into a program that promotes a longer-term exchange of ideas and information, and could be used as a model for other international partnerships. POLAR is committed to inspiring, motivating, and supporting students to continue their education and pursue a career in science and technology, which includes supporting the next generation of researchers.

Who can apply: PhD-students or scientists holding a PhD degree not older than five years, employed by a university or research organisation in Canada or Sweden
