We invite applications of early career scientists to attend a Community Earth System Model (CESM) Polar Modeling Workshop, August 12-16, 2019 at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO USA. The workshop is supported by the National Science Foundation and will include about 20 early career (graduate student, postdoc, < 7 years since Ph.D.) polar scientists. Admitted participants will receive travel funding to cover air fare, lodging and per diem during the workshop. Workshop participants will gain hands-on experience planning, designing, executing, and analyzing earth system modeling experiments to understand changing Polar climates and to explore better methods to integrate models and observations. Participants will engage in advanced activities focused specifically on capacity building for using CESM in polar research (e.g., sea ice, land ice, atmosphere, ocean, land, paleoclimate).
The CESM Polar Modeling Workshop will follow directly from the Annual CESM Tutorial held August 5-9, 2019. Prospective participants who have not attended the CESM Tutorial should apply for both the CESM Tutorial and the CESM Polar Modeling workshop. Prospective participants who have previously attended the CESM Tutorial (or have equivalent experience) should apply for just the CESM Polar Modeling Workshop.
In order to apply for the CESM Polar Modeling Workshop, please fill out the form at: https://goo.gl/forms/CvRemR7262HzRN3I2 and send additional materials (CV and letter of reference) as requested at the end of the form. Please submit by March 8, 2019.
