Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

The National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs’ Antarctic Organisms and Ecosystems Program has issued a Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) to encourage the submission of research proposals that would advance scientific understanding of how Antarctic creatures evolve and adapt to unique and ever-changing Antarctic environments.

The DCL encourages submission of proposals that address the National Academy of Sciences' strategic direction to focus support research activities that address the genetic basis and adaptations for life in Antarctica, as well as NSF Big Ideas emphases on Understanding the Rules of Life, Harnessing the Data Revolution and Convergent Research.
