Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


IARPC LogoIARPC Collaborations brings together individuals from a variety of disciplines, knowledge systems, career paths, and career stages around the shared goal of improving collaboration in Arctic science and research. The IARPC Collaborations Mentorship Program draws on this community to provide mentoring opportunities from a variety of career stages and paths within the Arctic research community. It brings together small groups of researchers and other professionals to discuss career opportunities and issues, learn from and support one another, and grow together.

The IARPC Collaborations Mentorship Program will run from February through October 2022, with an optional break in August. It will kick off at a launch meeting on February 4 at 9am AKT / 1pm ET; after that, mentorship groups will meet at least monthly. There will be two additional all-cohort webinars in May and October.

Participants will be placed in small mentoring circles (4-5 people per circle) that include individuals from a spread of career stages and types of career. Depending on the number of people interested in the 2022 session, circles may be organized by general field, or may include a variety of fields and themes.

Anyone working in the Arctic research space can join the IARPC Collaborations Mentorship Program. You do not have to be a scientist or to be actively researching/publishing. This program is not exclusively for early-career individuals—we encourage people from all career stages to sign up.
