Do you want to be more involved in scientific activities at a circum-arctic and international level? If so then please consider applying to be an IASC Fellow!

The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) in cooperation with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) are introducing this new Fellowship Program that invites applications from early career researchers to be involved in the IASC Working Groups (WGs). The IASC Fellowship Program will be offered every year and each year one Fellow will be chosen for each of the five IASC WGs for a 12-month period. The IASC WGs are:  

Fellows will actively participate in the activities of the WG both scientifically and organizationally. You will have the opportunity to gain valuable insights into the workings of IASC and develop your own skills and scientific network. Each WG has an annual meeting at the Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) and each Fellow will receive funding to attend two of these meetings: one as an incoming Fellow and one as an outgoing Fellow.

For this round of applications, interested early career researchers have to fulfill the following criteria:
  • PhD student /candidate or postdoctoral researcher (up to 5 years past the PhD)
  • able to commit to participating in the activities of one of the IASC WGs for 12 months from April 2015 to April 2016.

  • A full CV
  • A statement of interest including:
    • your research background
    • why you are interested in becoming an IASC Fellow
    • which IASC WG you would like to join
    • why you are interested in that particular WG
Please send your application to no later than 12 GMT on 17 November 2014. 
Applicants are also encouraged to submit an abstract to the Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) 2015. Abstract submission deadline is on 10 November 2014.
