Young researchers interested in conducting research in the atmospheric sciences, glaciology, geosciences and microbiology (excluding marine microbiology) at, or near, the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica station (located in Dronning Maud Land in East Antarctica at 71.57°S 23.20°E) are encouraged to apply.
Applicants must be either doctoral researchers or researchers who have completed their PhD within the past 10 years and should submit an original research proposal for a project which will include field campaigns operating from the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica station during two austral summers (2014–15 and 2015–16). Please note that the successful applicant will continue to work at their current research organisation.
The deadline for applications is Thursday April 10, 2014.
A joint initiative of the InBev-Baillet Latour Fund and the International Polar Foundation, the €150,000 research grant aims to promote scientific excellence in Antarctica and underscores the crucial role polar science plays in furthering our understanding of the Earth and how it functions.
