Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The Arctic Data Center has announced a call for applications for a data science training workshop for Arctic researchers. This five-day workshop will be held 19-23 October 2020 in Santa Barbara, California. Application Deadline: Friday, 24 April 2020. For more information, go to: Workshop homepage

The Arctic Data Center provides training in data science and data management. These are critical skills for the stewardship of the data, software, and other research products that are preserved in the Arctic Data Center. The major goals of the Arctic Data Center are to advance data archiving and promote reproducible science and data reuse. This five-day workshop will provide researchers with an overview of best data management practices, data science tools, and concrete steps and methods for more easily documenting and uploading their data to the Arctic Data Center.

Space for this workshop is limited. Both early career and established researchers from the Arctic research community are encouraged to apply. Participants will be selected on the basis of their current research or work activities; their previous experience with open science practices, data management techniques, and analysis methods; and their current or former opportunities to access training in these areas. Applications from individuals currently funded through NSF Polar Programs will be prioritized.

Participants will receive support to cover the cost of an economy round-trip airfare within the contiguous United States. Course participants will also be provided with accommodation in Santa Barbara, California for the duration of the course.

Application Deadline: Friday, 24 April 2020
