Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

 

If you are interested in the impacts of climate change on high-latitude marine ecosystems, this is your opportunity to help shape the future of the Ecosystem Studies of the Subarctic and Arctic Seas (ESSAS) program.

ESSAS is a regional program under the Integrated Marine Biosphere Research (IMBeR) project and is inviting nominations for an Early Career Scientist (within 6 years of PhD completion, excluding any periods of leave) to join its Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) for a three-year renewable term. The SSC is responsible for the development, planning and implementation of science with the goal to "compare, quantify and predict the impact of climate variability on the productivity and sustainability of Subarctic and Arctic marine ecosystems".

We are seeking members from any of the countries bordering the Arctic, or any country with active research programs in the Arctic. We are striving to diversify our SSC membership and encourage women and minorities to apply. Nominees with expertise in any aspect of high-latitude marine ecosystems will be considered. This includes but is not limited to oceanography, integrated modelling of socio-ecological-economic systems, Indigenous knowledge, and marine policy/governance science.

Please send a CV and brief biographical sketch to the ESSAS co-chairs:
